2014 Terra Sancta Shingle Beach Pinot Noir

Regular price $45.00 Sale

Planted by Gary Andres, an Oregon Pinot Noir pioneer who wished to create a Pinot Noir to rival the great Burgundies, the block is named after the shingle beach below the block. Shingle Beach is a densely planted block which reaches optimal ripeness at low sugar levels and bears tiny, pristine grapes. The result is evident in the hallmarks of this wine; fine grained tannins, minerality, earthiness and concentrated dark fruit flavours, all at under 13% alcohol.  Vibrant and elegant.  2012 was our inaugrual release of this wine.

Glorious texture and refined structure define this compelling Pinot Noir. It is dense yet silky, powerful yet perfectly poised.
