Description

At Flowers, Pinot Noir is partially de-stemmed to provide a 75% whole-berry environment in small open-top fermenters. Pinot Noir is cold-soaked for five to seven days at a temperature of 45° F and the hand-punching-down begins. After the cold-soak period, the fermenter is warmed to 68 °F to 85 °F and wild yeast carries the fermentation to showcase the terroir and complexity. Once fermentation is complete, the wines are left in contact with the skins for 10-15 days to further enhance flavor and color development. Free-run wines are drained using natural gravity flow to French oak barrels and the remaining skins are gently pressed in a small traditional basket press. All wines are aged between 14-16 months in small French oak barrels from Burgundian Coopers. The Flowers philosophy is to retain all of the natural vineyard elements while hand-crafting its Pinot Noir. This ensures the true expression of its unique vineyard sites when the wines are enjoyed.
