2018 Sea Smoke

We are excited to annouce!!!

Sea Smoke 2018- arriving in September
Subject to confirmation.


We are also getting their Chardonnay and Sparkling - email aaron@wineandcheeseplace if you are interested in those.


2018 Sea Smoke ‘Southing’ Pinot Noir...$79.98
Character: Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal marriage of complexity and elegance. The ever-changing nose of the Southing exhibits Watermelon, Jasmine, Victoria plum; and subtle baking spices. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced by our estate vineyard’s characteristic cool climate acidity.


2018 Sea Smoke ‘Ten’ Pinot Noir...$79.98
Character: A brooding and intense wine. The aromas begin with notes of Elderberry, Freesia and Fig, then a myriad of savory spices, and a hint of lavender. Firm, mature tannins—evidence of Ten’s ageability—are followed by a long, velvety finish.



More info:
Winemaking: Hand-harvested, clusters were sorted in the vineyard and then gently destemmed following an evening in our cold room. All ‘jack stems’ were removed on the sorting table. Musts were cold soaked in open-top fermenters for five days, and then inoculated with cultured yeasts to begin slow fermentation. Each tank was manually punched down two times per day, with a total maceration time of sixteen to twenty-eight days. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration, all free run wine was transferred to tank for settling, and then pressed at extremely low pressure (0.08 bars) to avoid extracting bitterness. After settling overnight both free-run and press wines were racked to barrels.
