Williams Selyem Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

The Weir Vineyard Pinot Noir reveals aromas of red currant and strawberry with hints of crushed rock. Citrus peel and lavender add a wonderful perfume that epitomizes elegance. Dried herbs belie the fruit and floral elements which adds yet another layer. Wonderfully textured on the palate, the Weir offers red fruit flavors that transition to citrus and then to crushed quartz. This wine clings to the palate and finishes with elements of oolong tea.

THE VINEYARD
The Weir Vineyard is located near Yorkville in Mendocino County. Fifteen
acres are planted on a south-facing slope of a steep old sheep ranch. The
elevation is just under 1,000 feet and the climate is classic warm days and
cool nights. The Weir Vineyard is planted to Romanee-Conti, Wadenswil
2-A, Pommard, and Rochioli clones. The vines are cane pruned with
vertical shoot positioning, and a plant density of 1,000 vines per acre.
HARVEST 2016
The 2016 vintage was an excellent growing season and it started out as the
previous four vintages with a warm and dry winter. The main difference
in this growing season was cooler temperatures in late February, and
increasing rain totals in March that helped slow down vegetative growth.
The net result was a slightly longer vegetative cycle, a slower grape
maturation cycle, and therefore a later harvest compared to 2015. These
events allowed for perfect maturation of the grape tannins and flavor
development. Harvest started with pleasant weather on August 10 in the
Middle Reach Neighborhood vineyards (Westside Road). Weather in late
August cooled and by early September temperatures warmed up and dry
conditions prevailed. The result was our core harvest was completed
under ideal conditions by end of September. Overall, the wines from the
2016 vintage exhibit wonderfully polished tannins due to long and slow
grape maturation on the vine.
