Notre Vue

2019 Balverne Pinot Noir

2019 Balverne Pinot Noir
Russian River Valley

Made up of 3 different clones from The Estate, this pinot noir fits perfectly into the Balverne lifestyle.  A fruity and refreshing wine, this is perfect for those backyard barbecues, picnics with friends, and casual conversations on the back patio. With a nose of bright red fruits, baking spice, and damp earth, this is everything you want in  Pinot Noir.  The palate gives ripe cherries and strawberries with a hit of pomegranate syrup and herbal notes.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2019 Balverne Pinot Noir shows notes of bright cherry and strawberry fruits on the nose along with baking spice, damp earth, and faint cherry cola. The palate mirrors the nose, showing ripe cherries and strawberries and with air, a bit of pomegranate syrup and a slight herbal note.
Vineyard Notes
All the Pinot Noir Blocks at Notre Vue Estate are in the southern half the Estate with clear sun exposure and clay soils. This blend of clones has a majority of 459 & 667 with smaller percentages of 114 & 115. The 2019 vintage provided plenty of phenolic development and these lots were harvested between 23.4 & 24.3 brix
Winemaker Notes
The lots of this Pinot Noir were fermented in 4 ton open top fermenters using non-saccharomyces yeast as a sulfite alternative during a 5 day cold-soak. The tanks are then allowed to warm naturally and Native fermentation starts around 65 degrees and not allowed to rise above 82 degrees. Délestage and gentle gravity-fed pump-overs are the extraction methods used for this delicate, easy-drinking Pinot Noir. Aged in 100% French, medium & light toasted oak barrels with 25% new barrels for 9 months.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine will pair especially well with salmon dishes and roast pork.

Clones: 667, 459, 114, 115

This is a well-balanced pinot that can be drunk alone or paired with food. This is definitely my new favorite go to
