2018 Eleusis Noir
"Rich soils with a backbone of red clay over Schist. 25 year old vines. From the 2018 vintage, this one barrel cuvée of Pinot Noir (777 clone) is grown right outside the winery doors. This parcel has now become the pinot part of Farm Rosato in the years we have made this wine. 100% hand destemmed, presenting as bright red fruit on the nose before melting into richer and earthier tones on the palate, a result of the extended elevage. This wine is mineral driven and alive. It is in its prime at the moment. We recommend opening this amongst friends and consuming the bottle in one sitting. It is here for a good time not a long time.
Eleusis is dedicated to change, evolution and mysticism - an homage to the Eleusinian mysteries, which were the worlds longest running agriculture sect, connected to the worship of the Greek Goddess Demeter - Queen of the harvest." – Manon
