Our estate vineyard, originally planted in 1974, is comprised of 16 planted acres of Pinot noir. Our flagship wine, the Winderlea Vineyard Pinot noir, exemplifies what this stunning site is all about.
The nose opens with rich aromas of dark cherry and black tea swirling with lilac plumeria, and a hint of cracked pepper. The palate leads with darker notes of cocoa and fresh roasted coffee lifted up by orange spice and blackberry. Soft tannins and punctuated acidity lead to a lush finish dominated by high toned fruits and a hint of toasted pecan.
