Donkey and Goat, "Enz Vineyard", Pinot Noir - 2021

Item # 48311 750mL

From the historic Enz Vineyard which was first planted by the original homesteaders in 1887. This Pinot Noir comes from vines planted in the 1980s in the Lime Kiln valley of San Benito. The grapes were native fermented in tanks and then pressed into used barrels and aged for 8 months. Deepy concentrated dark fruits with lush mineral and freshness on the palate. Pair with duck and roasted potatoes.

Staff Pick Notes

In 2004, in San Francisco, Tracey Rogers and Jared Brandt established one of America’s first natural urban wineries. Throughout the years, Donkey and Goat has adhered to the principles of natural wine. This includes adding nothing (except for minuscule amounts of sulfur), organic farming, and hand picking. 2021 was unfortunate for many California vineyards. Luckily, a batch of Pinot Noir became available from The Central Coast’s Enz Vineyard. 40-year-old vines planted at 1100 ft elevation on sandy granite, limestone, and dolomite. Rich dark berry fruit, dried black tea, and a touch of smoke are packed into each mouthful. Grippy, granular tannins and a brisk acidity give the wine structure for drinking years later. A beautiful wine to pair with a truffled sheep cheese.
