A cool start to the season delayed flowering and slowed
early vine growth, but by late December our organic farming practices had the vineyard well placed for another stellar vintage. Healthy canopies kept the grapes cool through summer and preserved the freshness beautifully. Harvest finished up in early April, with the whites showing purity of fruit and incredible vitality.
Fruit was destemmed and pressed to tank immediately upon arrival to the winery then settled to clarify the juice. Batches were racked then inoculated for alcoholic fermentation which lasted 10-14 days. A portion of Semillon was fermented with new French oak to add a structural element to the palate, after which the parcels were blended and bottled in June 2022.
