2016 Pinot Noir
Awesome wine...Awesome price!!!
August 17 - Sept. 1, 2016
25.1 Brix at Harvest
Aged on new and used, French and American Oak
First Bottling - April 2017
The grapes for our 2016 Pinot Noir were harvested between August 17th and September 1st, 2016, with an average Brix of 25.1. 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 Oak barrels.
The 2016 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir is light purple in color with a lustrous hue. Fresh Cherry, Strawberry and Raspberry flavors are perceptible as the round silky wine passes through the mouth. Vanilla undertones, lent to the wine from oak aging, are perceptible in the clean, but supple finish. Ripe Strawberry, Cherry and Raspberry aromas are joined by a cream and Vanilla bouquet.

I am a Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir snob, and this Pinot is pretty bloody good!

So very smooth, absolutely no bitterness. Certainly one of the better Pinot Noir’s I have ever consumed. Wonderful job McManis!tcnaja
