Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine was made from a blend of fruit from three vineyards located in the “Deep End” of the Valley near the town of Navarro: Wiley, Hein, and Klindt. The vineyards’ close proximity to the Pacific Ocean encourages bright citrus flavors and refreshing acidity in this succulent wine.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested September 19th and October 4th at an average of 23.6° Brix, whole-cluster pressed to tank and settled for 24 hours. The final blend is composed of lots fermented in small neutral French oak barrels with five months of sur lie aging (60%), and in a 900-gallon French oak oval tank (40%).
