Valdiguié from Solano County Green Valley, California; light to medium bodied and dry, sightly spritzy at first but blows off, fruit forward with notes of blackberry, blueberry, plum, and currant, with subdued baking spice and layered earth, with medium acid, a great structure, and a soft dry grip. Drink chilled! Org, Bio, Sust
Whole berry clusters went directly into our large concrete tanks. Semi-carbonic fermentation occurred – foot treading and pumping over every day. After pressing we aged the wine back into concrete tank and neutral French oak barrels for 10 months. Yields are very low with this planting of old vine Valdiguié with about 1 ton per acre. With older vine plantings more complexity and structure comes out. The outcome is darker fruit with lifting acidity. This is a wine that stands out from the rest and ages nicely.
