Vintage Notes

A cold spring put the grapes way behind at bloom, continuing through set and veraison. A mild summer with weeks of ideals grape ripening conditions began to catch the fruit up but not enough to make a normal start to harvest. Harvest began 4 weeks later than normal but the weather was gorgeous and the first freeze didn’t come until Thanksgiving, well after the finish of our harvest.

Winemaker Notes

Destemmed gently and dropped by gravity into 1.5 ton stainless steel bins, cold soaked 72 hours, inoculated with a variety of yeasts, hand punched 3 times daily and pressed directly to barrel where the wine finished both primary and secondary fermentations.
