2016 Pinot Noir Wendling

Vinification:

Wendling Vineyard lies at the NW part of the Anderson Valley AVA - the closest vineyard to the Pacific Coast. Its 23 acres sit at 450’ elevation, on a south-facing slope in uplifted sandstone clay. Bathed in cool Paci c breezes and thick fog, the Pinot Noir grapes develop deep power and intense aromatics. Five clones - Pommard (33%), 667 (33%), Calera (12%) 828 (11%) & 115 (11%) - were hand-harvested at night. Clones were kept separate, hand sorted and fermented individually. 25% whole cluster, 5-6 days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, 18 days on skins & gently basket pressed. Gravity fed to French oak barrels (56% new). Aged 16 months on lees, gently fined, bottled unfiltered.

Produced from Organic & Biodynamic Vineyards
