2019 Littorai Anderson Valley
2018 Littorai Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir

2018 Littorai Savoy Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Savoy Vineyard is located just north of Philo, in the upper reaches of Mendocino’s Anderson Valley, the part that stays rather cool and foggy most of the summer. But because the vineyard is on a valley floor, it is protected from winds, and the environment is rather less harsh than in other vineyards that hug the Pacific coast. The more benign conditions may be one reason why adjectives like “soft,” “feminine,” “delicate,” and “forward,” are often used to describe this wine. Savoy vineyard Pinots feature joyous raspberry, plums and cherry as well as earthy notes of fern, wet moss and minerals. Antonio Galloni called the 2018 “A stellar wine in the making… Bright and focused, with terrific energy, the 2018 is a wine of pure and total class.” Ted Lemon suggests game as a good match with Savoy Pinot Noir.

2018 Littorai One Acre Pinot Noir

2018 Littorai One Acre Pinot Noir

The One Acre vineyard sits at an elevation of 500 meters in the mountains northeast of Boonville, in Mendocino County’s Anderson Valley. The windy site, farmed using organic and biodynamic methods, produces some of the richest, most seductive and complex wines in the Littorai portfolio. While Littorai’s One Acre Pinot Noir is a new offering for us here at Hotei Wines, the vineyard provided the fruit for Ted and Heidi Lemon’s very first California Pinot back in 1993. In 2016, they purchased the vineyard (and even expanded its size to 3.5 acres) to ensure access to these fine grapes forever. The 2018 is dark in color with aromas of rose hip tea, dried flowers, cocoa and earthy notes. On entry, it’s rich, balancing fine-grained, delicate tannins with intense acidity. Give it some time to open up — either in the glass or in the cellar.
