The 2021 growing season was almost as cool as 2020, but significantly wetter because of La Niña. Picking began early March and ripening was nicely paced across the different sites over a two-week period. Fruit came to the winery in very good condition and was all whole bunch pressed to tank for settling overnight before racking to barrels.
Wild yeast fermentation in French oak hogsheads of which 20% was new, followed by partial malolactic fermentation (70%) of which a portion was blocked to provide freshness and focus. The wine was rested in barrel for 10 months without stirring and then blended and bottled in February 2022.
