Phelps Creek Vineyards Le Petit Pinot Noir 2015
Le Petit invokes the crunchy freshness of Cru Beaujolais. Scents of strawberry and spice lace the nose. Pair with light cuisine and serve slightly chilled. This distinctive Pinot Noir soon becomes the favorite red wine of summer, as well as compliments the warm soups for Autumn.
Their small boutique winery focuses on estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; annually producing 5,000 cases total of all their varietals. Vineyard care takes center stage in their wine production. Sustainable agricultural practices combined with careful management of the fruit yields on the vines leads to the noted intensity of their bottlings. They first planted our oldest vines of Pinot Noir in 1990, shortly adding a block of Dijon clone Chardonnay two years later. Incrementally, they expanded the vineyards and now nurture 30 acres.
