Bold Wine Co. 2018 Pinot Noir, Monterey, CA, USA

Drawn from vineyards on the Monterey peninsula, BOLD Wine Co. is a second project from Seabold Cellars. Established in 2014 by MS Chris Miller and winemaker Peter Figge, Seabold was founded with the focus of cool-climate wines made as hands-off and traditionally as possible. 
  • Winemaker: Chris Miller, Peter Figge
  • Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
  • Farming: Sustainable, Organic
  • Terroir: Chualar Clay Loam,Elkhorn and Arnold Sandstone. Balestra Vineyard lies just north of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, on a very cold climate benchland property owned and farmed by a multi-generational family of farmers. The wines from the property always show a certain bright, fruit-forward character which is often balanced out by a judicious inclusion of whole clusters during fermentation.
  • Vinification: Hand-harvested at night. Upon entering the winery, the grapes are hand-sorted. Balestra is whole-cluster fermented (75%), Olsen Vineyard is 100% destemmed. After a native yeast fermentation, the wine is then aged for 8 months in neutral barrique before racking, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
  • Aging: After 8 months on fine lees in neutral barrique
  • Tasting Notes: Crushed raspberry, balsamic strawberry, rhubarb, white mushroom.
