2013 Paul's Legacy Pinot Noir

Limited production single vineyard wine crafted from grapes grown on Skaneateles Lake.  Elegant wine with hints of raspberries and strawberries on the nose, delicate cherries on the palate, and medium tannins on the palate.
The 2013 Paul’s Legacy Pinot Noir is a beautiful, elegant wine. Notes of raspberry and strawberries on the nose, followed by delicate hints of cherries on the palate. Medium tannins linger on the finish, drawing you back to the glass.
This selection is a tribute to the late Paul Wellington - the first vineyard manager at Hobbit Hollow Farm. Paul's gentle spirit and peerless commitment to the vines continues to speak through the wines grown on this vineyard site. Paul was selected by the Falcone family to plant the first vines on their high elevation Skateateles lakeshore site in 1998, and he nurtured them through his final vintage in 2012. Pinot Noir can only evolve into a beautiful wine with proper care and devotion in the vineyard. In 2013, the Falcone family and current vineyard manager Chris Fluri continued the careful stewardship of the Pinot Noir vines, ensuring an ongoing legacy of beautiful Pinot Noir wine.
Grapes were hand picked into small 30 lbs baskets, then gently hand-sorted to select only the best possible fruit. The grapes were then fermented in one ton bins, where they were "punched down" by hand twice per day. Fermentation lasted for 13 days, then grapes were gently basket-pressed and the resulting wine aged in French Oak barrels for 14 months. The wine was not filtered. 97 cases made.
Pairs beautifully with summer vegetable cobbler, truffe-infused roasted chicken with brioche stuffing, or cedar plank grilled salmon.
