Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir 2016
Pinot Noir has its origins in the rolling chalky hills of Burgundy in eastern France where it is responsible for the region’s famed red wines. It can be a temperamental and frustrating variety, even in Burgundy. Ripening early and low yielding, it is susceptible to excessive heat and cold and prone to large clonal variations. Even when the right climate is found, it must be coupled with sound vine management, as Pinot Noir is very sensitive to overcropping. Vines with excessive crops struggle to ripen their grapes
