four virtues pinot noir 2017 750ml
A renowned wine writer said the best wines must exhibit four virtues: a distinctive style and quality unlike any other; a unique expression of origin (terroir); an intense but not overpowering flavor; and satisf ying to the palate and intellect- in other words, be a wine worth talking about! Our winemaking team has passionately crafted this debut vintage with these virtues in mind.
The 2017 growing season started off with ample rain, which helped to replenish soils after 5 years of drought. The much needed rainfall helped to generate healthy vine growth. Mild spring weather led to successful bloom and set of healthy grape clusters. Warmer temperatures in July helped to achieve full ripeness in the grapes. A heat wave in early September sped up ripening, but by the end of the month it slowed back to normal as the temperatures cooled.
