Domaine Anderson Carpe Diem Pinot Noir
Domaine Anderson is located in the breathtaking, fog-cooled hillside and mountain terrain of Northern California’s Anderson Valley. The cooling marine climate characteristic of this region provides ideal conditions for the cultivation of Pinot Noir.
Carpe Diem Pinot Noir is made in Northern California’s Anderson Valley. This region has gained an excellent reputation over the years, and is renowned for having the ideal terroir for growing Pinot Noir for still wines. Not far from the coast and the Pacific Ocean, this fog-shrouded region provides excellent growing conditions for this delicate grape.
Destemmed grapes were sorted, inoculated and fermented using indigenous yeast. 100% French oak barrel ageing includes 23% new oak during an extended malolactic fermentation. After 10 months in barrel, the wine is blended and bottled with loose filtration.
Reminiscent of Burgundy in its earthy, feral nose, yet simultaneously jammy in flavour, this boasts gamy undertones and a soft texture. Generous flavours of plum, blackberry and leather are uplifted with a great texture, silky tannin and crisp acidity.see less
