2019 Mietta Pinot Noir
I have always been worried when winemakers make exalted claims that each vintage is the vintage of the century.
The wet spring made us fear that another cold wet vintage was on the way, but as November came to an end so did the wet weather. The rest of the season turned out to be one of the most pleasurable that I have witnessed. Cool ripening conditions with just enough rain so that the vines were perfectly set up to produce fruit of exceptional quality. We see if these wines will rival our best years of 2005 and 2017
‘80% whole bunch vinification may not appeal to all, but I am more than happy with the forest floor and soaring spices. 100% new French oak was justified, and has been almost entirely absorbed by the fruit.".
