HAND HARVESTED ON OCTOBER 12th, 2018
9 DAY, 100% WHOLE CLUSTER CARBONIC MACERATION
NATIVE YEAST FERMENTATION, NO FILTERING, NO FINING
We're excited to announce the release of our 2018 Scribe NOUVEAU of Pinot Noir.
The first experimental vintage of Scribe NOUVEAU was bottled in 2014, inspired by the fresh and lively NOUVEAU wines of Beaujolais, France - substituting the Burgundian Gamay varietal with our Pinot Noir grapes.
On October 12th, 2018, our Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested from our Carneros vineyard. The fruit underwent a 9 day, 100% whole cluster carbonic maceration in stainless steel. The juice was then pressed off the skins and fermentation was completed in tank, and then bottled on October 29th without filtration or fining.
NOUVEAU EMBODIES THE SPIRIT OF HARVEST.
DRINK NOW AND OVER THE HOLIDAYS.
