Martaella® Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir
This is the second vintage of this single vineyard Pinot Noir from our estate vineyard at the winery that is named in honor of the mothers of Joe Anderson and Mary Dewane. Only heritage clones of Pinot Noir were chosen for this intense but delicate Pinot Noir and we decided to ferment the grapes with a high percentage of whole clusters (~25%).
Deep ruby in color, the vibrant raspberry and cola aromas almost leap from the glass. On the palate, the wine’s juicy mouth feel is supported by ample acidity building with wild berry fruit through the mid-palate to the fine grain tannins on the finish. An intriguing blend of power and restraint, this Pinot Noir is both savory and delicately sweet.
