Description

Winemakers
Notes

After a beautifully warm but excessively dry summer, harvest began three weeks ahead. It was an amazing vintage with pristine fruit, small berries, and great concentration. The grapes were hand-picked from high density planted vines on a small triangular, north facing slope. With 30% whole bunches, wild fermentation occurred in open top fermenters. The wine was then pressed and aged for 11 months in seasoned French oak barrels.
Unfined | Unfiltered | Vegan.
