Sokol Blouser Evolution Pinot Noir
Supple, ripe, elegant Pinot Noir which thrives at Sokol Blosser. The exceptional red (volcanic) jory soils of the Dundee Hills provide a good home. The vines range up to 30 years old and careful hand-sorting of fruit ensures that only perfectly ripe fruit makes it to the fermentation stage. Winemaker Alex Sokol Blosser uses an original technique for producing full-flavoured wines allowing for a post-fermentation soak of up to three weeks resulting in soft tannins and a more complex wine. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for approximately sixteen months followed by a further year in bottle.
