2015 Pinot Noir
Sept. 3-6, 2015
25.7 Brix Avg.
First Bottling April 2016
The grapes for our 2015 Pinot Noir were harvested between September 3-60, 20153, with an average Brix of 25.7. After fermenting on the skins for 6-9 days, the must was pressed and the resulting wine finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine then received the equivalent of approximately 6 months of aging in French and American Oak barrels.
With its medium Ruby hue, the 2015 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir offers Strawberry preserves, fresh cherry mixed with Vanilla and Cream aromatics. Once in the mouth, these flavors are recognizable, in addition to a hint of Blueberry. Round and mouthwatering, the finish of this Pinot Noir is a well balanced combination of fruit flavors from the grapes and the Vanilla and Cream contributed from the oak aging.
