REGION: New York
VARIETY: Pinot Noir
SOIL: Thin loam over shale
WINEMAKING: Hand picked grapes were foot crushed, whole cluster, and put into one-ton bins to ferment by ambient yeast. The grapes received once daily punchdowns for 8 days before being bucketed into the half-ton bladder press. Settled juice was pumped into old French oak barrels to finish fermentation which continued into July of 2018. In October the wine was racked off its lees and gravity bottled by hand without fining or filtration.
