The 2005 growing season
By all accounts Mother Nature was smiling on Burgundy throughout the 2005 growing season. Generally speaking, the growers were able to harvest grapes at their leisure, due to the warm, dry conditions throughout the region. Burgundy wines from the 2005 vintage will show rich, intense flavors of red and black fruits, flowers and minerals; true terroir expressions.
The grapes for the 2005 Hangtime Pinot Noir from Burgundy, were on the vine for a minimum of 107 days. Burgundy, the historic origin of Pinot Noir, was a natural source of fruit for Hangtime Cellars. Growers in burgundy have been cultivating Pinot Noir grapes with complex character, vibrant flavors, and rich texture for over 2000 years. The 2005 Hangtime Pinot Noir was crafted to be enjoyed upon release or allowed to develop beautifully over time.
