Solas Pinot Noir

« Solas » is the Irish for ‘light’ and in Old French means ‘joy’, ‘pleasure’, ‘enjoyment’. Our Solas wines reflect the purity, balance and light handed approach that characterizes Laurent’s approach to winemaking.

Varieties

Pinot Noir 100%

Vinification & aging

Night time harvesting, pre-fermentation cold soaking between 5-7 days to extract maximum fruit aroma. Fermentation up to 25-26 degrees alternating plunging and pumping over. Aging in stainless steel tanks with 20% aged in 1-2 year old barrels for 6 months to raise the complexity of the wine.

Tasting notes

Solas Pinot Noir is a well-balanced, food-friendly wine with medium body and light, bright berry flavours – red cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Smooth on the palate with aromas of garrigue strawberries and rosemary and hints of Indian spiced tea on the finish.
