Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. Other premium cooler regions include Carneros, Central Otago and north eastern Italy. Pinot Noir is thin skinned, giving it lighter colour and lower tannins, and fairly high acid. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate, a situation which causes some to refer to it as the "heartbreak grape". When young, wines tend to have red fruit aromas of cherries, raspberries and strawberries. As the wines age, they have the potential to develop vegetal and "barnyard" aromas that can contribute to the complexity of the wine.

  • Archery-Summit-Dundee-Hills-Pinot-Noir

    Archery Summit Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2018

    This is opulent and teeming with balance. Wild berries and fresh roasted coffee on the nose lead to complex stone fruit flavors and the peppery nuance associated with whole-cluster fermentation. A master juggler, this wine handles tannin, new oak, and minerality with remarkable finesse. Driven by quintessential Red Hills locales and flavors, the wine is a culmination of a 25-year legacy—an opus to special surroundings.

    With a deep, intense ruby hue, the wine opens with an expressive, harmonious blend of grilled, smoked and toasted aromas with fruity notes (ripe dark berries).

    Domaine Thenard Givry Cellier aux Moines 2016

The “Cellier aux Moines” parcel is very old with records dating back to 1258. With a terrific currant color, and a rich, intense fruit bouquet with aromas of ripe dark berries, this Pinot Noir has lots of sweet, pure fruit on the palate.

  • Elouan-Rose

    Elouan Rose 2019

    This wine brings together Pinot Noir from three distinct terrains along Oregon’s premiere Western vineyards. The diversity of these cool climate areas combined with an elongated growing season creates wine with intensity of fruit flavor, structure, and a fresh vibrant acidity. This is a bespoke rosé where grapes were grown and harvested with the specific intention of making rosé; and not a saignée rosé, which can be a by-product of making red wine. This wine should be enjoyed well-chilled. It is finished with a screwcap to preserve the crisp, clean aromas and tastes.

  • Racine-Pinot-Noir

    Racine Pinot Noir 2019

    Made from Pinot Noir grown at vineyards located between 300 and 400 metres in Limoux (Languedoc). While the Languedoc is not generally accepted as ideal for Pinot Noir, Limoux is an exception. The higher elevation, and therefore cooler vineyards, and considerable distance from the Mediterranean, makes the terroir quite different from the rest of the Languedoc. The region is renowned for using the cooler growing zone for sparkling wine production, long before the creation of Champagne.
