Description and Flavor Profile: Acrobat Pinot Noir is an e ortless wine selection. A wine that pairs in every way with our lives. Like a friend you want to see every day, its easy to live with and says a lot about you. Its not formal or fussy, its a success with any cuisine, or just for conversation.
The 2015 Acrobat Pinot Noir has a smooth start filled with ripe fruit. The middle fills in with a nice weight and depth. As the wine continues, the fruit mingles with earth and oak while the acid and integrated tannins provide a lengthy finish.
The Process: Destemmed, cold soaked, punched down, and pumped over, the 2015 Pinot Noir underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged 6 months in French oak.
Pairing: You can pair a wide variety of dishes with this extremely versatile Pinot Noir, from a delicate, poached salmon to a rich, braised duck breast. We recommend leaner meats (veal, chicken, turkey, rabbit, any game bird, filets of beef or pork, and a well-drained duck). Smoked, wood-roasted, braised or sausage meats (with the use of beef, lamb and pork). Earthy flavors (truffles, wild mushrooms, mustards, peppercorns, coriander and horseradish). Resin-like or scented green herbs (rosemary, thyme, tarragon, oregano, summer and winter savory, chervil, mints and basils). Aromatic sweet spices (clove, cinnamon, mace, allspice and nutmeg). Sweet vegetables (tomatoes, beets, carrots, caramelized onions and bell peppers). Autumnal fruits (figs, plums, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, currants, and black and dried cherries). Natural stocks and sauces rounded with butter.
Slow-cooking processes (braises and pot-at-feu). Mild or creamy cheeses (Brie, Camembert, herbed crèmes, cheddars, Havarti and jacks).
