Winemaker Notes

On September 26, 2007 14 tons were harvested from a three-year old block (20.2 Brix, 4.9 g/L Ta, 3.24 pH). Following pressing, the juice was settled cool at 40F. The juice was chaptalized to 22 Brix, inoculated with Epernay II (smaller lot) and D47 (larger lot) and fermented cool at 65 F. On October 1, 2007 six tons were harvested from ten-year old vineyards (23.6 Brix, 6.4 g/L Ta, 3.34 pH) and pressed as whole clusters. The juice was settled at 40F after pressing. The wine was fermented cool at 64 F with D47 yeast. Technical adjustments included SO2 addition, cold and heat stabilization, and the addition of ascorbic acid to prevent atypical aging and filtration. The blend was assembled on March 19, 2008.

Food Pairing

A lovely un-oaked wine that will pair well with a wide variety of foods.
