Light, fresh and utterly charming. Wild strawberry and summer herbs with cranberry tartness.
Clusters are left whole and started by carbonic maceration, then eventually crushed by foot and finished whole cluster for skin contact and extraction. Pressed to neutral barrique for a short 6 month elevage and bottled young to preserve delicate aromatics.
Grown at high elevation in the beautiful red granitic soils of the Sierra Foothills.
