Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our estate, Savoy Vineyard, long-recognized as a benchmark vineyard in Anderson Valley, is located in the “Deep End” of the valley, west of the town of Philo. The maritime influence and moderate daytime temperatures contribute to the wine’s elegant flavor profile and silky tannins. This wine is made of a blend of clones including several Dijon selections, Pommard, Martini, and Calera.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested in four picks on September 6th, 7th 30th and October 4th at an average of 24.2° Brix. It then went through a seven-day cold soak at 50°F, a nine-day primary fermentation, peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a five to seven day extended maceration. The wine was aged sixteen months in 60-gallon French oak barrels, 41% of which were new. Coopers include Cadus, Quintessence, Tremeaux, and Rousseau.
