The previous vintage scored 95 Points from James Suckling and sold out in a flash. We expect this vintage to fair just as well. While it lasts.
Located in the heart of Green Valley, this vineyard possesses the rare combination of excellent soil, old vines and ideal cool climate. Planted to Goldridge fine sandy loam, it is southwest facing and sees long periods of morning fog and cool coastal wind in the evening.
Although 2020 was met with several hurdles, shifts in temperature throughout the season resulted in shorter hangtime and lower yields, but the fruit retained bright acidity, resulting in lively wines.
Gently whole cluster pressed, cold-settled for two days, with only native yeast fermentation. The wine is then racked into concrete eggs and aged on the lees for 6 months.
