Tightrope Winery

2015 Pinot Noir

2015 Pinot Noir

The grapes for this wine came from theTightrope Vineyard and the adjacent Hermitage Vineyard. Extensive work was done in both vineyards to make this wine.  Fruit is dropped to one cluster per shoot and the shoulders are removed.  Both shoots and leaves are thinned to ensure good light penetration and even ripening.  The irrigation is strategically managed to control canopy growth, but guaranteeing good ripening of grapes.

The care taken in the vineyard continues in the winery where the grapes were hand picked and then processed immediately.  The grapes were de-stemmed, but not crushed, directly into small half ton fermenters where they cold soaked for five days, before a wild ferment  commenced.  In total the grapes spent about 21 days on skins before being pressed. The wine was aged in French Oak, 30% new, for about 10 months before being bottled.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Pinot Noir is fruit forward on the nose, with aromas of black cherry and plum, along with rose petals and sage. Black currant is evident on the palate, along with coffee, chocolate, spice and vanilla. This is a full bodied Pinot Noir, with soft silky tannins.
