Concentration, energy, balance, purity, moreish… Our buzzwords for the stunning Arista Winery 2021 Vintage Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs. This is the best line-up we’ve tried to date from an Estate we regard as one of Sonoma’s most exciting, progressive, and important wineries.

2021 is such a special vintage for Sonoma. Following a relatively dry winter, an early budbreak – the moment the vines awaken from their winter hibernation – led to beautifully sunny yet mild weather during the Summer period. This allowed the grapes to ripen perfectly ahead of a textbook harvest. As winemaker Matt Courtney put it: “The 2021 vintage felt like a generous gift from Mother Nature.”

There’s even more excitement with our new releases as we have a brand-new wine in our offering: the Kanzler Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021 - a truly special wine we’re privileged to have access to. Owners Mark and Ben McWilliams called it “A dream come true” when they were approached by the Kanzler family to start with working a prized parcel of this hallowed site in 2019.

2021 Arista, UV Lucky Well Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 6x75cl

JS98
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir Vintage production: 653 cases The Lucky Well vineyard sits atop a knoll on the western edge of the Sebastopol hills outside of the towns of Graton and Sebastopol. The area is... home to some of the most highly acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards in the Russian River Valley due in large part to the perfect confluence of soil, climate, and elevation. The vineyard is in an area often referred to as the “banana belt” of the Russian River Valley because, though on the very coolest, foggiest, and western edge of the appellation, it sits on a knoll that rises above the fog line. This feature exposes the fruit to more gentle sunlight, which allows very slow and even ripening across the entire growing season. Arista's 4-acre section was planted in 2008 to Pommard, Swan, and Calera clones of Pinot Noir.

Arista's vines are composed of Old Wente and Montrachet clones, on the vital Goldridge soils - a recipe that produces the most classical of wines: rich, intense, earthy, and loaded with fruit and spice, all balanced by a minerality and energy that showcases winemaker Matt Courtney's contemporary approach.
