Dunites is a small wine company named after a group of metropolitan refugees (a collection of free thinkers, artists, nudists and poets known as Dunites) from the 1930's who settled on the Oceano dunes of San Luis Obispo County, living as their own independent community. The husband-and-wife team of Tyler and Rachel Eck aim to produce transparent wines that respect the coastal influence of vineyard sites on the SLO coast. By using whole cluster vinification, minimal amounts of sulfur, native yeast fermentation, gentle extraction methods, lees aging, neutral oak maturation and bottling without fining or filtration, Dunites are making some of the most remarkable wines in all California.

This Pinot Noir by Dunites is sourced from Bassi Vineyard, located in San Luis Obispo County. The wine is fermented one-third whole cluster in neutral French oak barrels, then aged in those same barrels for ten months before being bottled, unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby red in color, the Bassi Pinot Noir possesses a hypnotic nose of dark red and black berry and stone fruits mixed with a hint of forest floor. Juicy on the attack, the palate is full of black plum and bramble berry flavors complemented with a touch of dried herbs. Bright acidity, satiny tannins and a fine-earth minerality help ferry those ripe fruit flavors to a lengthy, slightly saline-laced finish. Pair with most poultry or light meat dishes.
