Meiomi Pinot Noir, Monterey-Sonoma-Santa Barbara

Meiomi Pinot Noir, Monterey-Sonoma-Santa Barbara

A blend of Pinot Noir from three distinct vineyard regions; about half from Monterey, the fruit that provides dark fruit flavours and defines much of the texture and structure; a quarter from Sonoma, adding bright cherry and strawberry flavours, and a quarter from Santa Barbara which adds bright red fruit again with notes of Christmas spice. Each lot was fermented separately and treated differently using punching down of the cap or pumping over as required; aged in French oak of which 60% is new. Aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty vanilla oak lead off; the palate shows blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha; finishing with supple, silky tannins.
