2018 Nutt Road Pinot Noir

 Limited production wine grown on a sustainably farmed vineyard on the west side of Seneca Lake. Cherries and chalk on the nose, followed by plums, exotic spice and red currants on the palate. Medium tannins on the finish.
Aromas of bing cherries and chalky minerality on the nose, followed by dark plums, exotic spice and red currants on the palate. Medium-firm tannins linger on the finish, drawing you back to the glass.
Nutt Road
The Nutt Road vineyard is located on the west side of Seneca Lake on well-drained Honeoye silt loam soil. Vineyard manager Peter Martini’s use of sustainable viticulture methods, and his attentiveness to the vines ensure that the resulting Pinot Noir grapes are of exceptional quality.
Each of the three Pinot Noir clones were separately hand-picked in order to vinify each clone individually. The hand-picked grapes were received from the vineyard, then gently destemmed and optically sorted. The optical sorter used cameras to evaluate the color and texture of each berry, and selected only those which met our standards for the best possible fruit. The stems were hand-sorted to select those we wished to include in the fermentation. The selected stems and fruit were co-fermented in 1/2 ton bins for a 50% whole-cluster stem inclustion ratio. The must was gently basket pressed, and the wine was transferred to barrels using gravity flow techniques. The wine was aged for 12 months in Francois Freres French oak barrels, then bottled under the Vino-Lok glass closure to preserve the essence of the wine.
Pairs beautifully with pan-seared duck breast with a savory cherry compote, herb-crusted roast pork loin, or a simple salad of grilled beets and goat cheese over a spring greens mix.
