Winemaker's Notes:

The inspiration for Hunterdon comes from the crus of southern Burgundy where producers age their wines in large casks which naturally introduces miniscule amounts of oxygen into the casks to soften and mature the wine. This controlled introduction of oxygen is known as "micro-oxidation". We believe this winemaking technique allows the true varietal character of pinot noir--stunning cherry fruit--to shine while maintaining a touch of the earthiness that pinot fans love. The balance of cherry and earthiness in the 2007 vintage makes the newest release of Hunterdon an ideal accompaniment to food. The Vincor vineyard where Hunterdon was grown is located due west of the town of Gonzalez on top of a knoll overlooking the Gonzalez River and the fertile fields stretching out to Highway 101. The soils are well drained and the exposure is such that the vineyard gets the benefits of the cool morning sun while moderately protected from afternoon sun. The vines were planted in the mid 1970's and are on their own roots.
