Vineyard Notes
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Our site is characterized by thick morning fog and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types. Ideal growing conditions, varied soils, and our minimal-impact farming methods yield precise, balanced fruit.
Production Notes
Each Pinot Noir clone was hand-harvested at night, hand­ sorted, then tank-fermented in open-top stainless steel and oak uprights. Averaging 10% whole clusters, it remained on skins for 17 days, then basket pressed and aged in French oak barrels for a total of 18 months-approx. 50% new oak, 50% 2-3 years old oak.
Other Notes
Clones 667 and 777.
