Walter Hansel Winery is located in Sonoma County at the southern tip of the Russian River Valley near the Sebastopol hills. It is bordered to the north by the Santa Rosa Creek and to the west by a tributary of the Russian River known as the Laguna de Santa Rosa. This location is ideal for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the nights and mornings are cooled by coastal fog yet the mid-days warm up to perfect grape ripening temperatures. Temperature swings of 40 degrees are very common. Read less

From the estate's highest elevation Pinot Noir vineyard, the 2008 Pinot Noir The South Slope (all from Dijon Clone 777) boasts a dark ruby color as well as abundant amounts of dark raspberry and kirsch liqueur-like fruit intermixed with hints of forest floor and flowers. Tightly-knit in the finish, with a hint of minerality, and beautiful texture, it is a promising Pinot that should evolve for a decade. These are consistently terrific wines, seemingly regardless of the vintage conditions. Moreover, they are realistically priced, and wine consumers couldn't have a better friend than proprietor Stephan Hansel.

From Dijon clone 777, the 2007 Pinot Noir South Slope is from the highest elevation of any of the Hansel vineyards (and there are 80 acres). It has deep plum and pomegranate notes with hints of sassafras and wood spice. The wine displays a nice, subtle smokiness, medium to full body, good acidity, and a long finish. Unfortunately, there is very little made. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016.
