Lindsay’s Vineyard is located in the Sta. Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County. Climbing from 500 to 1,000 feet above
sea level, this hilly site is treated as a series of individual micro-vineyards delineated by soil, exposure, elevation, grade,
rootstock and clones. The well-draining soils and cool maritime climate make this a perfect spot for Pinot Noir. Produced
by guest winemaker Leslie Renaud of Foley Estate, this Pinot shows the pure fruit and vibrancy characteristic of its cool
climate origins. The fruit was hand-picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard in the cool morning hours to preserve the
aromatics. The clusters were then de-stemmed with no crushing. The must was cold-soaked in open-top fermenters for four
days and then allowed to ferment with native yeast. The wine was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 19 months.
