Region: Central Coast
Grape: Pinot Noir/Gamay
The Pinot Noir and Gamay plantings for this wine are from the Topotero Vineyard, located just 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean. 2021 was the first year that the Topotero Vineyard started to convert their farming practices towards certified biodynamic farming. The 2 varieties were picked, foot tread, and whole bunch pressed separately, then fermented with native yeast in old French oak barrels.
The wine was aged on lees for 7 months then racked and blended before bottling. This wine was bottled with minimal sulfur and without filtration. 192 cases were produced.
Notes of strawberry shortcake, ocean mist, & pink lemonade.
