Pinot Noir 2021

Bonterra Pinot Noir 2021This product is from the Organically Farmed Collection

Careful sourcing from celebrated Mendocino County vineyards with various microclimates and soil types results in a complex, bright, fruit forward Pinot Noir. After hand harvesting, the fruit was gently de-stemmed and moved to small open-top fermenters for a three-day cold soak. It was then inoculated with select yeast strains for fermentation. The cap was punched down daily to reach the desired color and level of phenols. After a gentle pressing in a basket press, the wine was settled and transferred to 100% French oak barrels where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak for ten months and then fined with organic egg whites prior to bottling. This Pinot Noir has aromas of strawberry and raspberry, accented with hints of oak spice and vanilla. In the mouth, this wine is rich with nice soft tannins and flavors of berries, vanilla and spice that fade into a lovely long finish.

I’m really humbled by the following of our Pinot Noir. We sell out every year, which keeps a healthy amount of pressure on Jeff and I to continue making great wine! We really try to exercise restraint with this Pinot – an elegant wine is always the objective. This is a really versatile red wine. It’s really enjoyable on its own but it also compliments a wide array of dishes because it doesn’t compete with flavors.

Crafted with certified-organic grapes and aged 12 months in French and American oak, this red opens up with richness defined by notes of vanilla and coffee dappled with strawberry and white pepper. Silky, with a hint of spiced tobacco, a swath of licorice, and a touch of bergamot, it leaves behind a generous, lasting finish.
