2018 'Eden-A-Vent' Pinot Noir
A playful interpretation of Pinot Noir from the Estate, our 'Eden-A-Vent' is crafted in Cru Beaujolais-style: a foundational element of this small-lot is carbonic maceration - an anaerobic, oxygen deprived, fermentaion - which contributes to the wine’s distinct spirit.
Molded by the unique fermentation process, the bouquet shows high tones of bing cherry and cherry cola, as well as strawberry tops, white pepper spice, and tropical notes of lychee, starfruit and banana in the recesses. Spry and vibrant, the flavors carry through on the palate while the texture is soft and replete with firm acidity.
