Our Pinot Noir grapes are sourced from several cool climate growing regions including the Santa Lucia Highlands. These marine influenced vineyards allows us to create a Pinot Noir that is crisp and complex yet approachable on the palate. We carefully picked our Pinot Noir during the cool night and morning hours. Once at the winery, the grapes were de-stemmed, gently pressed and cold soaked for several days prior to fermentation. We used both open top ferment-ers, which provide more intense color and soften tannins, as well as stainless steel, to protect Pinot Noir’s delicate fruit nuances. After fermentation, the wine is aged for six to eight months in French and American oak.
Lush berry aromas with hints of baking spice lead to a jammy red fruit palate. Medium in body, Lucky Star Pinot Noir has a round mouthfeel, smooth tannins and a lovely, lingering finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon or tuna, roast chicken or lamb sliders.
