100% Pinot Gris from Antiquum Farm’s Little Field, 20 year old vines. Bellpine soil. The grapes were hand picked before sunrise on September 29th and then destemmed at the winery. Primary fermentation with indigenous yeasts occurred in open top vessels with daily punch downs. After the completion of alcoholic fermentation, the wine steeped on skins until a textural shift took place. After pressing, the wine aged on the lees for 9 months in 100% neutral French oak. 30 days of skin maceration roots Alium in an earthbound tone and bends Antiquum Farm’s tropicality towards something herbaceous and savory. A succulently layered texture adds density and intrigue. 13% alcohol. 75 cases produced.
