2017 Walnut City Wineworks Belle Pente Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml

2017 Walnut City Wineworks Belle Pente Vineyard Pinot Noir

image may not be actual bottle available

Depth, elegance and aromatic complexity define the nose of the 2017 Belle Pente Vineyard Pinot Noir. Sweet red cherry and wild raspberry fruits mingle with notes of allspice, orange peel and rose petal. The palate is silky and harmonious; seamless from start to finish with no overt tannins – a characteristic we were pleased to see across many of our wines from the 2017 vintage. This Pinot Noir will get sweeter and more aromatically complex over the next five years, and will continue to evolve gracefully long past that time.” -Michael Lundeen - Winemaker's Notes

Varietal: Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is responsible for some of the world’s finest wines. Famed for producing the red wines of Burgundy and the Côte d’Or in particular, it is now widely grown in cool climates across Califonia and Oregon, and with increasing success in New Zealand. Although typically used to produce varietal wines, Pinot Noir makes a significant contribution in the wines of Champagne, where it is vinified as a white wine and blended with Cardonnay and Pinot Meunier. On the whole, fresh summer fruit of strawberries, raspberries and red cherries tend to be the identifying qualities, however richer versions express darker fruit including black cherries (kirsch), cherry cola, leather and violets to name a few.

Country: United States
Although wine is made in all 50 states, it is understandable, with almost 90% of the country's production, that California is synonymous with domestic wine. As of 2010 harvest, reports indicate that Washington, New York & Oregon account for additional 6% of production, meanwhile Virginia, Missouri and Texas's wine industries are growing to a point beyond that of just a tourist attraction.

Region: Oregon
Oregon is without a doubt establishing a reputation for producing to some of America’s finest wines, made from Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The Willamette Valley is the largest and most well known AVA. The Dundee and Eola hills, as well as Ribbon ridge are three of its most promising sub-regions.

Sub-Region: Willamette Valley

Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
