2013 Bella Terra Pinot Noir
A true expression of place and people, typical PondView Bella Terra.
Our first vintage of Pinot Noir was hand harvested in late September between 22.4 and 23.6 Brix. Cluster selection ensured that only the highest quality fruit was used to craft a wine that maintains the expression of PondView and its vineyards.
Fermented in open top bins using two selected yeast strains helped to promote the site’s natural fruit expression and develop complexity and weight to match the style that PondView’s reds are known for.
The care and attention to detail in the winery and cellar is seen in the purity of fruit, balance and intensity that was achieved in this true expression of place and people.
Musky notes of figs, raspberries, hints of vanilla, lavender and sweet tobacco gently caress the nose. The palate is well balanced and juicy with raspberries and ripe pomegranate.
Supple and silky tannins with hints of toffee and salted black licorice on an extended, graceful finish.
Serve with Duck Rillette , cured meats, hard cheeses and crostini.
Drinking well now.
