WillaKenzie Estate Pinot Noir Gisele 2015
100% Pinot Noir
This Pinot Noir displays tremendous fruit intensity, reflective of the long, warm, dry 2015 growing season in the Willamette Valley. While there was plenty of heat accumulation during the summer, cool nights aided in the retention of the natural acidity and freshness the region is known for. WillaKenzie Estate’s Gisèle Pinot Noir offers ample freshness, juicy red fruit and spice on the nose, carrying through to an approachable palate with wonderful fruit concentration and length.
Gisèle Pinot Noir displays a lovely garnet, ruby color with a nice smokiness in the nose that gives way to aromas of blackberry and red cherry. This Pinot Noir has juicy acidity and flavors of raspberry, plum and a hint of white pepper. The mouthfeel is elegant and polished with a long, velvety finish. Enjoy this wine now or age for 5 to 7 years.
Located in northwestern Oregon, the Willamette Valley is one of the world’s leading winegrowing regions with a specific focus on cool-climate viticulture. Long, dry summers at moderate temperature; well drained, porous soils; and exposed hillsides make the Willamette Valley ideal for growing Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, the region’s most prominent varietals.
