Roco 'The Stalker' Pinot Noir 2019 - 750ml

$ 40.00

92 Points Wine Enthusiast 

This is fermented with de-stemmed stalks—not whole clusters—to add what winemaker Rollin Soles calls “stalk-derived spice and body.” In past vintages the result could be excessively stemmy, but Soles has refined the process and the result is a smooth and fruity wine with hints of dill and pepper. The barrel aging (all neutral) nonetheless has left a seam of caramel across the palate, with pomegranate and cherry fruit in the background.

Additional Details

Hand picked Pinot Noir grapes are chilled overnight to 40F. The next day, whole berries are de-stemmed into small 1.6 tons fermenters for a 10-Day cold soak. During this cold soak, 100% of the stems that were removed are collected and separately aged for 7 days under inert gas. Removing the stems is a paramount step, since traditional whole cluster fermentation does not ensure fully ripe stems. Then the aged stalks/stems are hand punched into the cold grape berry fermenters, kicking off the fermentation. They are punched down twice a day until end of fermentation. The grapes are then gently pressed and the juice is transferred to French oak barrels and matured for 18 months before bottling.

Return Policy:

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
