Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The fruit was sourced from our Twin Peaks Vineyard estate, as well as the hillside terraces of our Poetry Vineyard. The wine is composed of small lots from many of our best blocks, representing a diverse range of carefully selected clones and rootstocks. From exposed, rocky terraces that are volcanic in origin to valley-floor alluvial soils, the breadth of contributing sites translates into a wine of impressive complexity.
Production Notes
Hand harvested in the cool early morning hours, the fruit was hand sorted with a goal of eliminating less-than-perfect berries. The selected fruit was gently delivered to tank via gravity by our crane system, minimizing disruption of berry integrity. Cold soaks lasted approximately five days, and fermentations were managed by a combination of délestage, pumpovers, and punchdowns. Extended maceration ranging from three to four weeks fine-tuned tannin profiles, allowing us to build mouth feel and wine complexity. The wine was aged in French oak for twenty-one months, 54% of which was new.
