2019 J. Brix Audire Kickon Ranch Vyd Pinot Noir - Santa Barbara Cty, California (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (20)|
Pinot Noir grown on a bed of ancient beach & diatomaceous earth, chert, limestone on Kick On Ranch in Los Alamos in Santa Barbara County. The grapes were harvested at sunrise on September 10, 2019; in the cellars the grapes were destemmed and fermented with native primary & malolactic fermentations. The wine was aged for 10 months aging in neutral French oak barrels, racked once, and bottled unfined and unfiltered with just a touch of SO2 (15ppm!) added before bottling, the only addition of any kind.
Winemakers Emily & Jody Brix say: "Each of our wines from Kick On Ranch bears a Latin name. 'Audire' (pronounced Aw-DEE-ray) means 'listen.' We strive to listen to the vineyard, the growing season, the fruit; we believe this wine has something to say."
