2018 MARTIN RAY HALLBERG VINEYARD PINOT NOIR
Cold climate Pinot Noir farmed by an expert grower and crafted by a veteran maker can be a joy to behold, and the coldest, most fog-prone region in Sonoma County is Green Valley. The area lies near the southwestern edge of the greater Russian River Valley, where the soils are Goldridge, which is some of the most sought after land for growing premium Pinot Noir. Located in Green Valley, Hallberg Vineyard’s dry-farmed vines attract some top producers to craft a wine from it. Martin Ray’s version at less than $30 is a profound example of how great they can be.
Hallberg Vineyard sits on the edge of Green Valley, and the former Apple Orchard is 100% dry-farmed, which lends to the grapes reaching their full physiological ripeness at lower sugar levels. Pinots produced from Hallberg often have supple fruit, intriguing earth & mineral characteristics along with heightened balance.
Martin Ray proprietor Courtney Benham has three decades of experience, and his talent for selecting distinctive vineyards is highly evident in this wine. With 94 points and a price that’s nearly half of the winery retail, I wouldn’t wait too long to secure your case.
