* NECTARINE * PINK GUAVA * WHITE CHERRY *
Made from Pinot Noir grapes (clones: Martini, Pommard, Mount Eden & Wadenswil) grown on the Scribe Estate on the southwest facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain. Harvested early in the season when fruit is full of the bright, high-toned acidity. 100% whole cluster direct pressed, followed by a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve vibrant aromatics. Energetic and fruit forward on the nose with a dry finish.
2018 meteorological data: The cool, rainy winter was reminiscent of the pre-drought years. Late Spring weather had little rain and wind, creating an ideal environment for flowering. The remaining growingseason and harvest had cool foggy mornings, which allowed for slow balanced ripening. 2018 was our longest harvest yet, and it was beautiful.
