De Loach Heritage Collection Pinot Noir 2020
Region: California, USA
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Noir
An elegant and well-balanced Pinot Noir, offering juicy flavours of raspberry and strawberry, accented beautifully with a touch of white pepper. It is medium-bodied in style with a bright and lingering finish.
All the De Loach wines are made and bottled at their estate facility. The Pinot Noir was made from fruit grown in premium vineyards throughout northern and central California, helping to achieve a unique balance of delicate Pinot characteristics and more intense fruit flavours.
Established in 1973 by Cecil De Loach, a firefighter from San Francisco, De Loach was purchased by Burgundian Jean-Claude Boisset in 2003. His son Jean-Charles Boisset saw the similarities of the Russian River Valley with his native Burgundy and the potential that the region held for producing fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. One of his first decisions having acquired the estate was to convert the seven hectares of vineyard surrounding the winery to biodynamic farming.
