TASTING NOTES: Cardamon, Swedish Christmas cake and Damson Plum
Harvested on September 12th, we received 5.2 tons in total. The fruit was divided into a 50% whole cluster ferment for this single vineyard bottling, and a de-stemmed ferment for the SBC bottling. This whole cluster portion was foot tread twice a day throughout the 13 day fermentation. Pressed to barrel, MLF occurred spontaneously over the winter of 2016. The wine was racked once under July’s new moon of 2016.
