Type: White Wine
Grape: Ribolla Gialla
100% estate-grown Ribolla Gialla. The wine was fermented whole cluster with native yeast in an open-top tank using punchdowns. After two weeks the must was pressed, and the wine was aged for 18 months in neutral barrels. The wine aged sur lees and it was never racked. No sulfur was used until a tiny amount at bottling.
The Ribolla gialla tastes like hazelnuts, baking spices, meyer lemon curd, Bartlett pear, but most of all it has a distinctive, stony minerality. There is supple tannic structure and fresh balanced acidity, with great weight and length given the moderate (11%) alcohol.
