' Heart & Hands - Wine

2015 Pinot Noir

Elegant 50% whole cluster fermented wine crafted from grapes grown on Seneca and Cayuga Lake.  Hints of violets, raspberries and cherries on the nose, followed by bursts of dark cherry and plums on the palate, and medium-firm tannins on the long finish.
The aromas jump from the glass, tantalizing the senses with hints of violets, raspberries and cherries. Bursts of dark cherry fruit continue on the palate, along with english toffee and plums, followed by medium-firm tannins on the long finish.
This wine is crafted from grapes grown on the following vineyards in New York's Finger Lakes AVA: 64% - Elaine's Vineyard - Seneca Lake (East Side) 18% - Patrician Verona Vineyard - Cayuga Lake (West Side) 18% - Nutt Road Vineyard - Seneca Lake (West Side)
The hand-picked grapes were received from the vineyard in small individual picking lugs. We hand sorted the grapes, selecting only clusters and berries which met our quality standards. Fifty-percent of the fruit was destemmed while the other fifty-percent remained whole cluster and the blend was co-fermented in one-ton bins. Fermentation lasted for 13 days, after which point, the grapes were basket pressed and gently transferred into barrels using gravity flow methods for 13 months of aging in Francois Freres French oak barrels. In mid-summer of 2015, we tasted through all of the individual barrels from the vintage, and selected the barrels for inclusion in the final wine. The wine was then bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine. 331 cases produced.
