Strawberry, watermelon, and pomegranate fruit flavors burst from this wine. With less than .5% residual sugar, this wine finishes fairly dry. This is 100% Pinot Noir grown in the Wind Whistle Vineyard, which produces very ripe fruit giving the wine a round, luscious mouth feel. The Wind Whistle Vineyard on Leelanau Peninsula is farmed by Spencer's longtime friend, Doug Mathies. The Wind Whistle block was planted in 2006, formerly a sweet cherry orchard with all day sun exposure. This special spot features sandy soil with great water drainage and is only one-half mile from Lake Michigan, extending its growing season but staying cool enough to bring out the brightest fruit flavors. In addition, the vineyard is meticulously manicured; it is hand hedged, leaf picked, and hand harvested.
