Pinot Noir

Boars' View Estate Pinot Noir

The vineyard is primarily composed of Goldridge Loam soil that shows a yellowish, fine sandy surface and offers excellent drainage with low fertility — ideal for cultivating low yield, high quality Pinot Noir with full body and expansive character. 

Now in our 10th leaf at the vineyard, our vines are in their prime, the ‘sweet spot’ of their development offering yields with considerable concentration and consistency from which we can make the most expressive, elegant wines possible.

In a vintage like 2018, nature handles much of the early leg work for creating a memorable wine, and this vintage we had a lot of positive attributes in our favor. There is a complex woven harmony of dark red fruit, precise structure, and a pleasant spice compliment found in this wine. Aromas of cranberry compote, sandalwood, and lavender swell from the glass. The palate experience is dense with layers of black cherry, nutmeg, quince, plum paste, and lilac. The coating, decadent fruit quality is balanced with a mouth-watering acidity that draws out the extended floral finish. Overall, this is a wine that possesses a wealth of riches, reflective of the generous growing season, and contemplative winemaking practices. — Thomas Brown
