"Pinot Noir has been cultivated on these hills since the French monks planted it in the 12th century. They thought this land was special for pinot noir and chardonnay. The new Sanctum Lisica pinot noir is made with a hand-off approach in order to express the fruit and the terroir of Lipoglav vineyards in the glass. The wine shows a bright cranberry nose with complex vegetal notes when allowed to breathe. The mouthfeel is quite intense initially, but elegance and inviting drinkability are revealed when this earthy, medium body wine is paired with food.
Starting with 2018 vintage Sanctum Pinot Noir is different from its predecessors. Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were destemmed and spontaneously fermented in open top fermenters. 19-24 day maceration. After 12 months of aging in used French oak the wine was blended in stainless steel tanks and bottled unfiltered." - Vinum USA
