About Stirm Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

Stirm Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir comes from great heritage sites on the Central Coast. Bright red berries, spice, and velvety tannins.

The 2019 growing season was relatively mild, much like 2018, with a few key differences. We had elevated rainfall for the winter months, and bud break started in mid-April, followed by some late rains in May, which helped provide the needed moisture for a larger than average crop. Close to perfect fruit set and a lack of extreme heat led to long hang time, high flavor development and low sugar accumulation.  Harvested on September 3rd, 2019.

The grapes were picked by hand, sorted in the field. At the winery, the grapes were destemmed into a redwood fermenter. Pumped over once daily, pressed after a 10-day fermentation. Elevage in old (10 years) barriques for 8 months. Racked to stainless a month before bottling. Unfined, unfiltered. Bottled July 18th, 2020. 145 cases produced.

About Stirm Wine Company‘s Philosophy

“It’s our belief that authentic wine is a direct reflection of the specific patch of earth it comes from. This ethos drives us to work with the most unique and rugged vineyards found on the central coast. These special sites have a story to tell unlike any other. We have two simple goals that direct every operation above all else: to present the narrative of the growing season in a delicious and transparent format and to craft a wine with a strong foundation intended to age for decades. The fundamentals that we follow are old-school; we work with the seasons. We spend the majority of our time working in the vineyards, with our harvest season spent between monitoring natural fermentations to picking grapes and the overtime hours dedicated to fixing broken gear. Every year is unique, so the vineyard and cellar practices evolve annually to adapt to the changes each season brings forth. These simple methods require thoughtful, timely decision-making, detailed work, and the patience to allow the wine to evolve at its own pace. The results are singular, authentic wines that represent a region, a site, and are a piece of living California history.”
