Join me as I taste and talk through the single vineyard 2017 Vincent Pinot Noirs:
Temperance Hill Vineyard
I'll break down my thoughts about each wine, with discussion of the vineyards, clones, soils, vine age and farming, and then of course the winemaking.
How does volcanic soil compare to marine sediment (old ocean floor)?
What about wind and elevation?
Older or younger vines?
Own rooted or on rootstock?
What about this natural fermentation business?
It will be geeky enough for all us wine nerds to enjoy, but don't fear - I specialize in connecting less experienced tasters to what's going on in their glass too.
Hope you can join me!
