Arterberry Maresh Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "Destemmed in 1¼ ton lots, Jim’s light touch in the winery allows the intrinsic character of the wine to blossom. Passive temperature management ensures spontaneous fermentation proceeds and is monitored and guided by sensory analysis, gentle extraction techniques and low peak temperatures. Immediately upon reaching dryness, the lots are gently pressed in a half-ton wood bladder press and settle 2-4 weeks before being transferred to 5%-10% new French oak barrels for twenty months. They are only racked to prepare for bottling." - Winery Winemaking: "Fruit is hand harvested, handled minimally and processed immediately. Sugar, acid or water additions have never been needed. Restrained extraction techniques and a preference for neutral French oak helps to highlight the purity of old vine fruit. An interest in judiciously exposing young wines to oxygen early helps achieve aromatic integration, fine texture, length and longevity. The wines are transparent and unadorned, all estate bottled, unfined and unfiltered." - Winery Winemaker: "Raised on the Maresh family farm, Jim worked in the vineyards at an early age and learned to farm grapes in the Dundee Hills from his grandparents, Jim and Loie Maresh and his mother, Martha Maresh. His first winemaking lessons came from gleaning grapes after harvest and in 2005 he founded Arterberry Maresh Winery honoring his father's earlier label (Arterberry) and his Maresh history. Jim produces only Pinot noir and Chardonnay from the Dundee Hills - with no filtration or additions (water, sugar, acid, nutrients, ect...) Each vintage reflects the year in the vineyard and every vintage has it's story." - Winery
