This is Ventisquero’s ultimate expression of Pinot Noir from a special hill-side vineyard in the Casablanca valley. The grapes are cooled by breezes and fogs that blow in from the Pacific Ocean.
The grapes are harvested by hand and macerated before fermentation in temperature-controlled vessels at low temperature to extract colour and increase the complexity of the wine. All the wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (25% new) and for at least another 6 months in bottle at the winery before release.
The wine shows the classic raspberry and strawberry characteristics of Pinot Noir. It also shows notes of vanilla and baking spices, and a pleasant herbal note. It is medium bodied with good complexity and length. It is best drunk inside of 10 years from the vintage.
