Pali, 2020 Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard Natural'

About The Wine

Our wild fermented Pinot Noirs have always shown tremendous dimension and outwardly beautiful aromatics, but until 2019 these barrels were only blended with other inoculated Pinot Noir barrels as small but essential components of every Pali Pinot Noir. Bottled on its own, our Wild Series Pinot Noir is unmistakably old-world in style embodying a gem-like garnet color, delicate earthiness, and an alluring perfume. Today, our Wild Series Pinot Noir is made from sustainably farmed Pinot Noir grapes grown on Pali Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County. This wine is fermented using wild, naturally occurring yeasts and without the use of conventional winemaking tools and additives including sulfur throughout its elevage. It is fermented in small lots and then aged in entirely neutral French oak barrels for 90 days. This wine is unfined and unfiltered and will naturally develop sediment.

The AVA

With a total area of 30,720 acres, the Sta. Rita Hills AVA is home to over 59 vineyards, totaling 2,700 hundred acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and 18 other cool climate wine grape varieties. The combination of a purely East/West maritime throat, poor marine-based soils, elevated calcium in the soil and the Pacific's cooling influence through fog, wind and moderating summer heat combine to form one of the world's best cool-climate viticulture areas for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Winemaker Notes

Raspberry red in color with slight haze. Nose offers fresh light red fruits... strawberries, tart cherries and rhubarb paired with white pepper, cedar. On the palate soft red fruits are lifted by the lively acid that lasts through to the finish.
