Pinot Meunier, 2019

Produced by Two Shepherds

Our 4th vintage of our wildly popular Pinot Meunier! This variety is rarely found as a still wine, and often abused when it is. It’s a delicate wine that doesn't respond well to heavy oak, thus perfectly suited for our light hand. Light bodied, yet subly layered and complex.
