Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This vintage we sourced from a variety of vineyards in the Sonoma Coast including both of our single vineyard sites, Heintz and Bohemian. These vineyards tended to deliver fully developed flavors at relatively high natural acidities, giving them remarkable length and verve.
Production Notes
The wines were gently pressed in a bladder press using a champagne cycle. Wines were settled and then racked into barrel for native yeast and malolactic fermentations (75% completed ML). Aging for 9 months in French oak of which 25% was new, with minimal bâtonnage. Cavin, Francois Freres, Dargaud and Jaegle barrels.
Winemaker Notes
The nose of this wine leans towards the orchard fruit range showing both apple and pear but also hints of tropical fruits and vanilla bean. In the mouth the wine is moderate weight but packs extraordinary depth of flavor, echoing the aroma with fuji apple, meyer lemon, sage and vanilla panna cotta. The finish is all energy with mouthwatering citrus notes.
