Clusters were destemmed and allowed to soak on skins for 4 hours prior to gentle pressing, allowing the juice to reveal the beautiful and delicate character of this Loire varietal. Once pressed, the juice undergoes primary fermentation in stainless steel drums and then allowed to age in neutral French oak for 6 months. The vineyard was planted in 1973, and is located in the high desert of Washington state. Harvest was September 30, at 21.5 brix and 3.1pH.
