2019 Walala Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

2019 Walala Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

The Walala Vineyard’s remarkable character stems from its 1,200-foot elevation, gravelly loam soils and proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Cool coastal temperatures allow for long hang time and balanced acidity, while the elevation gives the fruit ample sunlight in which to ripen. The 2019 vintage from Walala offers a pure expression of Pinot noir with elegance and complexity. Clone 113 provides the core of the blend, offering intriguing tropical flavors and layers of texture. Clone 115 provides a rich structural core and red fruit flavors. Clone 828 was fermented whole- cluster and blended in sparingly to add verve and length.

Walala Vineyard
