Winemaking

The goal of this wine is to showcase the potential of our Stanly Ranch Estate where we control everything from grape to bottle. This wine is from one particular block on the Estate. The grapes were handpicked then carefully sorted at the winery. This wine was barrel fermented with native and cultured yeast on heavy lees with no b√Ęttonage and light lees with b√Ęttonage. It was racked only once, to assemble final blend before bottling.

Tasting Notes

What sets this block apart from the others is its ability to get physiologically ripe, producing complex flavors and aromas ranging from citrus to tropical fruits, while retaining bright acidity. Due to the structure-driven nature, in the form of bright acidity, this wine has the potential for longevity while still being approachable in its youth. Light use of new oak was employed to maintain that purity of expression for those who are willing to give this wine some time in the bottle.
