Belle Pente Estate Reserve Pinot Noir
Belle Pente Vineyard and Winery
From the winemaker:
Since it's first release in 1997, our Estate Reserve Pinot Noir has always represented "the best of the best" that we coax out of our Belle Pente estate vineyard each year. It is a selection of outstanding individual barrels, with the core components typically coming from our original 1994 planting next to the winery and the steep section just above it planted in 1998.
In this 2016 version, however, the bulk of the blend comes from our Pommard and Dijon 115 blocks further up the hill with a south-east exposure. As our vineyard matures, the selection process becomes more difficult every year, but the pedigree of the resulting wine is unmistakable.
