Pinot Noir 2015

August 27th, 2015


Our Pinot Noir came in on Tuesday at 24.5 brix. Its a heavy bin at 1,215 lbs. We sorted a bit of fruit to keep the most quality for our fermentation.
Here is the Pinot Noir after its been sorted. You can’t see, but there is a layer of whole cluster at the bottom of the bin. That way there will be some stem left for pepper and tannins.
The fruit travels down a conveyer belt that we call a sorting table. There is a bin in the center that removes the grapes from the stems. The grapes continue down the line to be sorted through and saved for fermentation while the stems are dropped down into this bin. We also discard the unwanted fruit into this bin leaving only the choicest quality fruit to be turned to wine.

Everyone at Hearthstone understands this special love and would like to provide a way for you to share the day over a bottle of wine and a picnic while enjoying a view that is almost as beautiful as her. On Sunday the 12th, every bottle purchased to be enjoyed out on our patio will be discounted 10%. If you are a Wine Club member, you will receive this discount on top of your existing benefits.
