Harvested from 14 year old vines with root systems over three feet deep that had to work for every inch through our well-drained, rocky schist and sandstone ancient seabed soil that naturally does not encourage high vigour. This soil is why we bought our property in 2004, very different from the typical water-holding clay loam that dominates the north ridge of our valley.  We encourage a living soil supported by our organic practices so that these special terroir flavours are accentuated, and this vintage shows it off with pronounced mineral texture and a touch of saline. 50% crushed with skin contact for 24 hours before pressing. It was aged over the winter in stainless steel and bottled in the spring, finished dry to showcase its minerality. We choose a natural cork finish for its sustainability and it also allows the wine to develop its cellar potential and our library releases have shown longevity to 10 years of aging.

Wine is vegan.  Organic beeswax seal over cork.
