2021 Ode To Joy Pinot Noir
A year ago we introduced this new member of our Pinot Noir collection, and it quickly assumed
“cult status.” Its unique bright and fresh quality is achieved by means of a special fermentation
process called “carbonic maceration,” in which whole clusters of uncrushed Pinot Noir grapes
are fermented “intercellularly”, in a sealed stainless steel tank under a layer of carbon dioxide,
and then bottled early to preserve its freshness. (You may recognize this method as the process
that produces Beaujolais Nouveau.) The wine is completely dry, but the tannins are soft and
the finish is smooth. Serve it slightly chilled to show off its delicate flavors of crushed
raspberries, candy apple and strawberry Jolly Rancher.
[A note on the name: “Ode to Joy” may suggest Friedrich Schiller or Ludwig van Beethoven to
some of you, but it actually pays homage to the talented artist who painted the hummingbird
and flowers on the label: our daughter Elizabeth Joy Churchill Thompson.]
