Littorai Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2021
All the sources for the Littorai Sonoma Coast regional Pinot Noir are exceptional sites worthy of vineyard designation in their own right. 36% of the final blend comes from Richard Ranch in Anapolis on the northern end of the Sonoma Coast, 10% is from Balinard Vineyard in the western hills of Sebastopol. 33% is from press wines of vineyard designate lots: Hirsh, Mays Canyon, The Pivot, The Haven and Thieriot vineyards. All of the sites are farmed using organic and bio-dynamic methods. The proximity to the ocean and morning fog moderates the temperature in the vineyards, producing wines of superb elegance. At the winery, the organically produced grapes were fermented at controlled temperatures before being matured for 10 months in French oak (19% new) prior to bottling unfined and unfiltered. Vibrant, youthful tones of cherry, huckleberry, and rhubarb as well as flint and graphite. This is a rich wine; however, it remains very primary and has high acidity. With time it’s secondary character will become more expressive, but the primary aromas are already hypnotic. Sonoma Coast offers a glimpse of the depth, complexity, and general quality of the 2021 vintage.

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this.
As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.
To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!
