Colene Clemens Victoria Pinot Noir 2013
It opens with brooding red fruit, and intense baking spice aromas. The palate is fleshy and ripe, with dark fruit, hints of salinity and a supple, persistent finish. Lovely right now but will also benefit from 5 - 10 years cellaring.
Hand harvested at the peak of optimal ripeness between October 2nd & 6th, the fruit is 100% destemmed into small stainless steel tanks and begins with a 4-5 day cold soak. Following this, tanks are gently warmed, and fermentation by indigenous yeast begins and proceeds for 10-14 days. During primary fermentation, the tanks are gently punched down by hand twice daily. Once fermentation is complete, we allow for 5-7 days of extended maceration in tank before we drain the tanks and press the skins, stems, and seeds very gently to procure the remaining juice. Both the free run juice and pressed juice then go directly to barrel without settling. After 11 months in French oak—40% new; 40% 1-year old; 20% 2-year old—the wine is then blended and bottled.
Colene Clemens was founded in 2005 by Joe and Victoria Stark with the express purpose of making exceptional Pinot noir. The property is named in honor of Victoria’s mother, Colene Clemens.
