Lingua Franca Hope Well Pinot Noir 2016

Willamette Valley, Oregon, United StatesThe fruit for this wine was grown by LF viticulturalist Mimi Casteel on a prime site in the Eola-Amity Hills, not far from the Lingua Franca Estate. The fruit is all Dijon Clone Pinot Noir 667 coming off a biodynamically farmed vineyard using sheep, llamas and permaculture techniques. The attack is fresh and ripe. The wine is stunning mix of minerals and saline flavours doused in refined red fruits with just a hint of earth and spice in the finish. This wine is going to need three to five years in bottle to let the complexity and nuances come to the foreground but when it does, look out.Tasted: 31 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 125.00 private wine shops US 66.00 srp Producer: Lingua FrancaDistributors: Revelry Import Company
