A perfect distillation of the east and west sides of the Pinot Hill Vineyard, this mesmerizing wine is unlike any other Pinot. While it offers graceful layers of wild strawberry, rhubarb pie, Angostura bitters and cherry hard candy, what sets it apart is its savory undercurrents and its saline and umami notes. Mysterious and magnificently layered, it weaves a spell as the red fruit flavors mingle with hints of balsa wood, thyme, sage, sweet coffee and licorice root, all of which are framed by creamy, mouth-filling tannins and a restrained undercurrent of acidity that add lift and life to the tantalizing finish.

More about the wine

The harvested material is immediately taken to André Heucq’s wine cellar and selected there, carefully destemmed and pressed. The mash is fermented both in stainless steel tanks and in oak barrels. After fermentation, this wine remains on the mash for 3 weeks. Finally, this white wine rests in oak barrels for a total of 16 months to gently round off.
