Carbonic Pinot Noir. A playful interpretation of Pinot Noir from the Estate, our 'Eden-A-Vent' is crafted in Cru Beaujolais-style: a foundational element of this small-lot is carbonic maceration - an anaerobic, oxygen deprived, fermentation - which contributes to the wine’s distinct spirit. A wine that is much brighter, can be served slightly chilled, and drinks well young.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
50% F Block (Pommard clone), 50% C Block (828 clone)
Production Notes
Hand picked & sorted. Whole clusters were layered with dry ice in a macrobin & covered. With zero oxygen exposure for three weeks. The berries fermented from within. The grapes were then pressed whole cluster. Aged for 5 months in neutral barrels before bottling in late spring 2022.
Winemaker Notes
Light plummy purple shade leads to a nose of fresh cut summer strawberries and loose leaf teas. Flavors of chalky cherry, sweet cola, and berry compote are energetic and luminous. Finishes juicy, delicate and refreshing. A perfect chilled wine for summer evenings on the patio. - Winemaker Cory Waller
