Sandar & Hem Pinot Noir 2020

Sandar & Hem Pinot Noir 2020

£29.00 Ex VAT

Bright and ruby red in color, the aromas of this cuvée leap from the glass with notes of Morello cherry, pomegranate, and chipped shale. Rose petals and vanilla dance in the upper register as the wine opens up. A barrel selection chosen for it’s youthful readiness, the palate is supple yet refreshing, framed by a balance of silky structure and bright red-fruit expression. The finish is long and smooth, with all elements in harmony.

The delicacy and nuance of Pinot Noir produces one of the greatest challenges in the wild and
rugged Santa Cruz Mountains. The reward is a wine of intense aromatic complexity, focus, and the
characteristic structure of fruit grown on the densely-wooded mountainsides of this appellation.
Hailing from a range of vineyard sites at the far northern reaches of the AVA, this wine is comprised of
barrels that exude freshness and approachability.

APPELLATION: Santa Cruz Mountains
SUBREGION: Northern Skyline
VARIETY: 100% Pinot Noir
VINEYARD: Multiple Vineyard Blocks
AGING: 18 months in French oak barrels (15% new)

A warm, dry winter gave way to a series of powerful storms, delivering substantial rainfall through the
month of March. Cool, wet conditions continued through April and May, ideally delaying bloom
until drier conditions prevailed. Consistently warm summer months produced evenly-ripened fruit
across the AVA, leading into a mild September. This produced an ideal harvest season of highquality fruit, allowing for precision in our choice of pick dates. An exceptional vintage in the Santa
Cruz Mountains.
