Failla 2020 Pinot Noir Savoy Vineyard, Anderson Valley
Between 1991 and 1994 Savoy Vineyard was planted by original owner Rich Savoy in Anderson Valley. The vineyard is full of knolls composed of sandy loam and alluvial terraces with more darkly colored loams underlain with clay loams. Failla receives a selection massale from the vineyard, ensuring that it gets the most complexity and the truest reflection of the Savoy Vineyard. The grapes are 30% whole cluster fermentation with all native yeasts before aging for 11 months in 20% new French oak. The finished wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
