2016 King Estate Stone's Throw Pinot Noir

2016 King Estate Stone's Throw Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

“Stone’s Throw” comes from one of Winemaker Brent Stone’s favorite blocks on the estate, 4B in the southeast corner. This wine is 100% Biodynamic®, and is an elegant and delicate Pinot Noir, acid-driven with firm tannins. Enjoy a long finish on this well-balanced wine. Drink now until 2026.

Vineyard Notes

This very limited production wine is a personal favorite of King Estate Winemaker Brent Stone. Sitting at 800 to 1,000 feet in elevation, these grapes have a unique balance of perfect ripeness and fresh acidity. This Pinot Noir is made exclusively from Dijon clone 375, showing beautiful aromatics and balanced structure. Flavor components include violet, cherry and strawberry, ending with a long finish.

Winemaker Notes

Whole clusters are destemmed then subjected to a 48-hour cold soak with daily pump overs. For further concentration of flavor and color, 10% of juice is bled off the red wine during fermentation using the Saignée method. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel open top tanks with daily punch downs. All winemaking practices are certified Biodynamic, including native fermentations (primary and secondary) and minimal intervention throughout. Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months, 25% new.
