Evening Land Seven Springs Pinot Noir 2015
The 2015 Seven Springs Pinot Noir comes from our oldest own-rooted block of Pinot Noir at the vineyard. Planted in 1984, these Pommard and Wadenswil clones thrive in iron-rich, volcanic Jory soils. These 31-year-old vines are harvested by hand, the grapes hand sorted, and roughly 65% of the fruit was destemmed. Gentle punch downs were employed throughout the fermentation to encourage a soft extraction of tannins and the wine was aged in 20% new French oak for 16 months. The 2015 Seven Springs Pinot Noir was bottled without fining or filtering.
