2018 PATO VINEYARD MATARO
Alcohol: 12.8%
pH: 3.63
TA: 6.3 g/L


VINEYARD: The Pato Vineyard was planted around the turn of the 20th century in the renowned Delhi Blow Sands of
Contra Costa County about two miles inland from the California Delta. Our Mataro block, which also includes some
interplanted Carignane, sits atop a gentle knoll facing Mount Diablo. The vines are own rooted and dry farmed
organically by Morgan Twain-Peterson and his team at Bedrock Wine Co.


WINEMAKING: Fermentation was 100% whole cluster and spontaneous for both primary and malolactic. We utilized a
combination of foot treading during maceration and gentle pumpovers during fermentation to optimize extraction.
Additions focused solely on nutrients as they were needed. After two and a half weeks on skins, the wine was pressed
off into neutral Burgundy barriques for a fourteen-month sur lie elevage. The wine was then bottled unfined and
unfiltered.
