Growing Conditions

1.5L/$105.00 2014 was another classic vintage. A mild winter and spring caused an early bud break followed by consistent temperatures throughout the summer, promoting even ripening. We had ample hang time which in turn yielded intense varietal character and a rich texture.

Bottling

Lightly fined with egg whites, this Platt Vineyard Pinot was bottled unfiltered in January, 2016.

Winemaking

Tank fermented with native-yeast and native malolactic fermentation in barrel.

Aging

As is traditional in Burgundy, we use an anaerobic approach to preserving the freshness and fruit characteristics of our Pinot Noir. It was aged sur lies with monthly bâtonnage and spent thirteen months in 30% new French barrels (François Frères) and previously used Chardonnay barrels.
