The grapes were picked by hand on September 28th / October 1st and given 36 hours of whole cluster maceration to extract tannins, aroma, and flavor compounds in the skins, followed by pressing the grapes. No sulfur was added to allow the juice to oxidize slightly. After a 36 hour cold settle in tank, the clean juice was racked off the solids to stainless steel tanks for spontaneous fermentation. Sulfur was added a month prior to bottling. Racked to tank one week prior to bottling. Unfined and unfiltered. Bottled August 13th, 2022. 240 cases produced.
It's their belief that authentic wine is a direct reflection of the specific patch of earth it comes from. This ethos drives them to work with the most unique and rugged vineyards found on the central coast. These special sites have a story to tell unlike any other. They have two simple goals that direct every operation above all else: to present the narrative of the growing season in a delicious and transparent format, and to craft a wine with a strong foundation intended to age for decades. The fundamentals that they follow are old-school; they work with the seasons. They spend the majority of their time working in the vineyards, with their harvest season spent between monitoring natural fermentations to picking grapes and the overtime hours dedicated to fixing broken gear. Every year is unique, so the vineyard and cellar practices evolve annually to adapt to the changes each season brings forth. These simple methods require thoughtful, timely decision making, detailed work, and the patience to allow the wine to evolve at its own pace. The results are singular, authentic wines that represent a region, a site, and are a piece of living California history.
