Littorai, 2015 Littorai Pinot Noir The Pivot Vineyard

"Just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel, the 2015 Pinot Noir The Pivot Estate Vineyard is all finesse. Silky, medium in body and beautifully perfumed, the Savoy shows the more gracious side of the vintage. A host of red berry, floral and citrus notes lead into the persistent yet understated finish. Best of all, the 2015 will drink well with minimal cellaring."

2015 Littorai Pinot Noir The Pivot Vineyard
Littorai

VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARD: Heidi and Ted Lemon purchased the Gold Ridge Estate in 2003 with the intention of building the “model farm.” The Pivot Vineyard is 3 acres within the 30 acre estate, making it one component of the biodiverse ecosystem. Farmed using biodynamic methods since it’s inception, The Pivot sits on classic Gold Ridge soils over marine-origin sandstone. This clay within dynamic soil type allows for just enough water retention to feed the vines in an average year. The goal is to dryfarm the vineyard.

AGING: The wine spends 16 months in French oak (25% new).
