Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deeply flavored with complex mineral, floral, and fruit elements, with spice, truffles, and savory herbs. The finish goes on and carries these flavors to the end.
Vineyard Notes
Mimi Casteel’s beautifully maintained vineyard, Hope Well, is a product of her creative and unique farming practices. You may see her pruning in winter while her dwarf sheep, herded by a prized llama, keep the flowers and grasses trimmed. The balance of life in her vineyard is obvious and we love the example it sets for us.
Production Notes
Sorted on a vibrating table before being destemmed, the grapes, relatively intact after gentle destemming are fed bin by bin, not pumped, into the small format stainless steel fermenting tanks of between 2 to 5 tons capacity. A small amount of individual lots of grapes may be selected for partial whole cluster treatment. Fermentation begins with gentle pump overs and may include one or two punch downs towards the end of the cuvasion. The foulage and pigeage are done traditionally by foot. After fermentation, the wines age in a combination of 20% new and 80% old French oak barriques for 14 months prior to bottling.
