Pinot Noir Saralee’s Vineyard
Top 1% wine in the world
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir
From: USA, Russian River Valley AVA
By: Rod & Lynne Berglund @ Swan Estate
From the Swan Estate in the Russian River Valley in California, this is a light bodied Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed now or aged for five years. The Russian River Valley is California’s coolest region and is well-known for producing fine wines, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnays.
The Swan estate was founded 50 years ago by Joe Swan, a passionate and curious winemaker who set the roots for an artisanal vineyard now managed by his artist daughter. Wines are created by Rod Berglund, a committed terroirist who firmly believes that the Russian River Valley is without peer in the New World. The grapes for the 2012 Pinot Noir Saralee’s Vineyard are carefully handpicked, fermented for 25 days on the skins and aged for ten months in French oak barrels.
