Made from earlier (7-10 days) harvested Foch from old vines, and fermented wild (both AF & ML) with 40% whole clusters. Blended with judicious amounts of Pinot, it is partially tank aged and partially neutral barrel aged for 5-6 months then bottled to capture the floral, herbal, juicy freshness.
The 2018 vintage was featured in November's Wine Club package, 2021.
