BETHEL HEIGHTS ESTATE PINOT NOIR

This wine blends fruit from all the different sections of our estate vineyard. It truly encompasses the entire breadth of expression at Bethel Heights from the youthful exuberance of our youngest vines planted in 2002 to the brooding, earthy complexity of our old own-rooted vines that have been knitting themselves into our landscape for forty years.

THE 2017 VINTAGE

2017 was our sixth very warm vintage in a row. Fortunately we had quite a lot of rain in the winter and early spring; total rainfall for the year was almost 20 inches above normal. Going into the growing season with the soil well-charged with water gave the vineyard the resilience it needed to withstand some heat extremes later in the summer. The summer overall was hot and dry, punctuated by a couple of significant hot spells in August and early September with consecutive days over 100 degrees, but September cooled down mercifully, with a few brief rain events that helped maintain freshness in the vineyard through the final ripening phase. The fruit was able to ripen on the vines for a generous 110 days after bloom in most blocks, with harvest beginning on September 27 and ending on October 15. For the complete fact sheet click here.
