Bethel Heights Estate Chardonnay 2019
The goal of the Bethel Heights Estate Chardonnay is for tension and vibrancy over opulence and richness. The 2019 vintage was a cool, challenging year that finished with small berries bursting with intensity. Notes of fresh quince, white flowers, roasted almonds and flinty tones with a satiny texture and layers of floral fruit.
Whole cluster pressed at low pressure and settled for 3 days at a cool temperature. Racked to 228L barrels and fermented to 35--40 days with lees stirring from mid-fermentation to its completion. Aged on its lees for 12 months. Racked and aged for an additional 4 months prior to bottling.
Bethel Heights Estate Pinot Noir 2021
The 2021 vintage was marked by the abundance of early picked fruit and the complexity of the earthy older vines picked in October. This vintage is sleek and handsomly structured with notes of red plums, raspberry, balck tea, forest floor and hints of minerality.
Destemmed all of the fruit into various fermentation vessels and managed each fermentation on a case-by-case basis. Pressed, then aged in barrel for 8 months.
