This single vineyard Pinot Noir is truly something special. The Johan Vineyard is one of the coldest growing sites in the valley, with morning fog and cooling ocean air snaking through the Van Duzer corridor directly from the coast. These sea breezes impart a saline character to the fruit, and help to maintain acidity levels. The result is a bright wine, richly layered with vibrant acidity and silky tannins.
"This is showing a bit of muscle, and some still-integrating barrel flavours, but it's already a wine that delivers plenty of pleasure. Forgive the flaky faux-wax topping (not thick enough to be called a real capsule) and enjoy the well-ripened blackberry fruit, the nicely-layered creamy chocolate, the touch of underbrush and the appealing length. Drink now through 2022." - Wine Enthusiast, 90pts.
