The 2021 Olivet Lane Nouveau of Pinot Noir’s nose beams with layered tones of blood orange rind, plum, lavender, lemon thyme, and black pepper. Upon first sip, the tongue is encased in cranberry and pomegranate, accented by carraway and black cardamom.
Grapes for this wine we have specifically chosen from areas of our Olivet Lane Estate with the perfect balance of grape and stem maturation. They were hand sorted directly into a 6 Ton fermenter, layering in dry ice during the sorting process. The only treatment the tank received was a bag of dry ice hung above it three times a day to promote an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment, and two pump-overs over the life of the tank time. After 19 days of carbonic maceration, the grapes were pressed into tank, where the remainder of fermentation finished natively.
