Game, smoke, tobacco, licorice, sage, incense and blood orange notes meld together in the 2012 Pinot Noir One Acre. A powerful, explosive wine, the 2012 impresses for its depth, intensity and sheer personality. There is a lot to look forward to here, but as is the case with so many of the Littorai 2012s, patience is required.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(13.4% alcohol): Good medium red. Aromas of raspberry, rose petal and spices are complemented by subtle oakiness. Juicy, bright and classically dry, with modest weight but very good intensity to the pure red fruit and smoky oak flavors. Finishes with a dusty edge of tannins and very good length. Has a bit more stuffing to support its spine than the Savoy bottling.
Littorai derives their unique sustainable farming techniques from the fertile cross currents of permaculture, agro-ecology and the agricultural philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the father of biodynamic farming. In addition to using only natural materials, they avoid all fertilizers. Estate produced compost is their “fertilizer” of choice. For those sites which they do not farm themselves, they use by-the-acre contracts to insure maximum quality and vineyard control, and they strongly encourage all of their farmer-partners to use only organic materials. They do not employ farm certification systems, as they believe that the true motivation for engaging in sustainable farming practices should not be for marketing purposes, but should be only for the good of the land, for the good of those who work it and for the future generations to whom it truly belongs.
