Region: Central Coast
Type: Red Wine
Grape: Pinot Gris/Pinot Noir
Fruit was grown above the sandstone quarry at the Bassi Vineyard on the Central Coast, close to the Pacific Ocean. The Bassi Vineyard was planted in 1999 and has always been farmed using organic practices. This fermented wine is 55% Pinot Gris and 45% Pinot Noir.
The Pinot Gris was all whole-cluster and the Pinot Noir was de-stemmed. The wine was fermented for 11 days, then gently pressed in the wooden basket press. Bottled after 8 months, unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulfur added.
Light-bodied, and perfumed with notes of candied red fruit, crushed pomegranate, dried flowers and blood orange.
