Fine Disregard Atlas Piedras Grenache Alexander Valley 2018


Alcohol: I4.2%
pH: 3.64
TA: 6.1g/L

VINEYARD: Fruit for the Altas Piedras Grenache was sourced from a small hillside vineyard planted in metavolcanic
rock in the foothills of Eastern Alexander Valley. The vineyard is head trained and biodynamically farmed using
deficit irrigation. Our block of Grenache, which was grafted to the Alban clone in 2012, sits mid slope on the East
face of the hillside.

WINEMAKING: Fermentation was spontaneous (for both primary and malolactic) and 100% whole cluster. We
employed a light foot treading for the first four days of maceration, followed by gentle pumpovers for the rest of
fermentation to optimize extraction. Additions focused on nutrients as they were needed, eschewing watering back
and acidulation. The wine was pressed off into neutral puncheons after two and a half weeks on skins. Following
fourteen months of elevage (sur lie), it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
