Nielson by Byron Pinot Noir
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Appellation: Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County
The Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir displays aromas of dark berry and cherry accented by hints of floral and mineral. The flavor profile has a core of dark berry and dark cherry with hints of earth and brown spices, backed by a smooth, silky and long finish. The wine is styled to highlight the vivid aromas and flavors of our cool-climate fruit, enhanced by careful winemaking. During fermentation, a combination of punch-downs and pump-overs was used to circulate the skins and juice, ensuring maximum extraction. The wine was transferred to small French oak barrels, where it aged for 10 months in our temperature and humidity-controlled barrel rooms.
