Our 2015 Ellenbach Pinot Noir stands out for its depth, structure and concentration of fruit. Rich in classic red cherry, delicate lilac and orange blossoms on the nose, this wine intrigues with bright red fruits on the palate, braiding lush tannins and vivid acidity. Hinting at a slight sweetness, this wine diverges on the palate and culminates with a tart, plush mouthfeel and a savory, elongated finish.
After three years of plentiful harvests, the 2015 vintage brought low, but outstanding yields. A mild spring and summer with almost no rain allowed the fruit to ripen at a very steady and deliberate pace, and picking began a few days earlier than 2014. The drier-than-normal conditions and abundant sunshine contributed to the smaller berry size and low yields, resulting in wines with excellent concentration, color and flavor.
