White Pressed Pinot Noir was inspired by vin clair, the still white wine before the secondary bottle fermentation of Champagne. We extract only the first two-thirds of the juice normally pressed from the fruit, thereby capturing neither color nor tannins from the red Pinot Noir skins.
Scribe's Estate vineyard on the southwest-facing slope of Arrowhead Mountain in the southern Mayacamas Volcanic range. Made exclusively from the California heritage Pinot Noir clone of Mt. Eden-37 and planted in volcanic tuff and Huichica Loam soil.
2021 meteorological data: A dry winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.
soil type: Huichica loam, rhyolitic volcanic tuff
