Winemaker's Notes

A single bottling of this unique selection of Pinot Noir, the Mariafeld clone is prized for its dark color, intense perfume and brawnier tannins. Planted to a north-facing block to avoid the heat, this wine offers exotic notes of Hawthorn, violet, blackberry and black plum. Nicely spiced with hints of vanilla, nutmeg, allspice and sassafras, our Mariafeld is quite satiny and long on the finish.
