2013 Mo Chuisle Estate Pinot Noir

 Second release of Pinot Noir grown on our limestone-rich estate vineyard.  Raspberries and cherries on the nose, cassis and earthiness on the palate, beautiful structure and finesse.
Delicate aromas of raspberries and cherries on the nose, followed by a delicious core of plums, cassis, and earthy flora on the palate. The finish is long and intense with firm tannins.
Heart & Hands Estate Vineyard
The Heart & Hands Estate vineyard is situated on the Onondaga Limestone Escarpment. Vinifera grapes flourish in the presence of calcareous limestone-based soils, which provide the vines with a solid foundation for growth. The vineyard is sustainably farmed without the use of any herbicides or insecticides. The vineyard is planted to seven Dijon clones of Pinot Noir, which are evenly distributed across the upper, middle and lower vineyard blocks. The 2013 vintage of Mo Chuisle is the second release of Pinot Noir grown on our Estate vineyard. Mo Chuisle is a Gaelic phrase, and translates literally to “My Pulse” or colloquially to “My Darling”. It is our great pleasure to share this wine: a long-tended dream, finally brought to life.
The grapes were hand picked in multiple passes over the course of several weeks to allow each clone of Pinot Noir to be harvested at optimal ripeness. After carefully hand-sorting the grapes, each clone was separately whole-cluster fermented in one-ton bins. The grapes were gently basket pressed and transferred into French oak barrels (18% new) for 22 months of aging. 269 cases produced.
Enjoy with classic Pinot Noir pairings such as beef bourguignon, parmesan semolina gnocchi, or venison.
