Our Talley Pinot, grown in the Arroyo Grande Valley of southern San Luis Obispo County, is typically the first Pinot Noir we harvest each year. The quality of Talley Vineyards Pinot was evident from the very first harvest in 1991 and remains one of our best vineyard sources. The 2010 release is our 19th vintage. These grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning so the grapes arrive at our winery cold. The first signs of an active fermentation were seen after a three day cold soak.  Fermentation took 10 days to reach dryness, during which the must was punched down twice a day by hand.  The wine was barreled down to all new François Freres barrels, after pressing and a short settling, and aged for 18 months. We did a light egg white fining to “soften” the obvious tannins typically seen in Pinot grown at Talley Vineyards.
