Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir 750ML 2012   
Sku: 35390

Producer notes
The Maresh family farms Pommard and Wädenswil PinotNoir from 1970, 1974 plantings and own-rooted Chardonnay from 1974 and 1983 plantings. Ranging from 500’ to 800’ elevation, these high elevation vines experience a long hang-time and are the last to ripen. The vineyard is managed by Jim Maresh Sr., Martha Maresh, and Steve Mikami.

Maresh Vineyard is Jim’s reference point for Dundee Hills Pinot Noir. It is the most complex and layered Pinot Noir. It tends towards pure flavors of concentrated red berries, black tea, sandalwood, floral tones, stony spice, and berry bramble. The silken tannins and long, intricate mouth feel speak to the truly elegant profile of this wine, which always benefits from ample air upon opening.

Technical notes
Fruit is hand harvested, handled minimally and processed immediately. Sugar, acid or water additions have never been needed. Restrained extraction techniques and a preference for neutral French oak helps to highlight the purity of old vine fruit. An interest in judiciously exposing young wines to oxygen early helps achieve aromatic integration, fine texture, length and longevity. The wines are transparent and unadorned, all estate bottled, unfined and unfiltered.

Destemmed in 1¼ ton lots, Jim’s light touch in the winery allows the intrinsic character of the wine to blossom. Passive temperature management ensures spontaneous fermentation proceeds and is monitored and guided by sensory analysis, gentle extraction techniques and low peak temperatures. Immediately upon reaching dryness, the lots are gently pressed in a half-ton wood bladder press and settle 2-4 weeks before being transferred to 5%-10% new French oak barrels for twenty months. They are only racked to prepare for bottling.
