Two Sisters Lindsay's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Winemaking for Two Sisters is driven by the goal to create high quality and sophisticated wines that speak to their most prized blocks in Lindsay’s Vineyard and Courtney’s Vineyard. Reecting this idea, they focus on creating Lindsay’s Pinot Noir and Courtney’s Chardonnay in the Burgundian style. They carefully hand-pick grapes in the cool morning hours to preserve avor and aromatics. After aging our wines for 17-19 months in 100% French oak barrels, a severe barrel selection ensures that only the nest lots are included in the final blends. The result of this care and drive for quality are complex, concentrated and elegant wines that embody the rarity of the Sta. Rita Hills.
A superior source of California Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Sta. Rita Hills is the coolest, westernmost sub-region of the larger Santa Ynez Valley appellation within Santa Barbara County. This relatively new AVA is unquestionably one to keep an eye on.
The climate of Sta. Rita Hills is a natural match for Chardonnay and Pinot noir, thanks to the crisp ocean breezes and well-drained, limestone-rich calcareous soil. Here, grapes ripen just enough, while retaining brisk acidity and harmonious balance.
