Sitar Wine Page
For the Sitar Pinot Noir, winemaker Tony Rynders’ goal is to craft a wine of fabulous richness, finesse and intensity. A collector’s wine that will deliver immense pleasure on release and for many years to come.
The 2009 Sitar Pinot Noir was sourced from six vineyards and four sub-appellations of the Willamette Valley. After aging for 15 months in 70 percent new French Oak, Tony painstakingly blended only the finest barrels to create the final Sitar wine. Only 300 cases produced.
