The grapes are hand-harvested at first light in the cool morning in small batches and carefully double-sorted. A portion of the fruit under goes whole-cluster fermentation to increase structure and complexity. Ritual Pinot Noir is 100% fermented with wild yeast, to increase depth, intensity and complexity. Malolactic fermentation and 12 months in French oak enhance elegance and richness.
Ritual Pinot Noir is an elegant wine with density and richness. Vibrant flavors of cherry and rasberry, soft tannins, fresh acidity and a lingering finish.
