Fullerton Croft Willamette Pinot Noir

Description

This wine was fermented primarily in 2-ton stainless steel tanks, commencing with a 10-day cold-soak, followed by a 10-day fermentation with 2-3 punch-downs daily, and two rack-and-returns. The residual blend was fermented in a rotator oak barrel, spun twice daily with two rack-and-returns and a 100-day extended maceration post-fermentation. It was aged in 40% new French oak for 11 months, followed by one month in tank prior to bottling.


Ratings

91 points - International Wine Report: The 'Croft Vineyard' Pinot Noir by Fullerton shows its herbaceous side from a challenging 2013 vintage. The 2013 Fullerton 'Croft Vineyard' Pinot Noir begins with aromatics of forest floor, crushed wet stone, red cherry with suggestions of black truffle. There are flavors of dill, red cherry, red raspberry and a hint of cola. Medium-bodied and balanced with a wonderful silky texture. The Burgundian character of this Pinot Noir suggests this will continue to age well in bottle.

Bottle Size: .750
