Winemaking is light handed, with timely and deliberate choices made to craft a wine that genuinely reflects the vineyard and vintage. We like our Pinot delicate and graceful, with all elements in balance. We strive for complexity and interest, and above all deliciousness. All of the blocks at Janes Vineyard are hand-picked in the early morning hours and de-stemmed mostly to stainless steel tanks with a small amount in puncheons, macro bins and small concrete tanks. Cold soaking takes for about 5 days, followed by fermentation with native yeasts for extra complexity. The 2016 Janes Vineyard Pinot Noir was aged for 11 months in 87% French and 13% Hungarian oak barrels from the finest coopers, 25% of which were new. Malolactic fermentation ensued in the barrels and was finished by late March. Final Brix level is 26.4.
