Adroît Mission Old Vine Mokelumne River 2018

Description

Boasting the coolest climate of the sub-regions of the Lodi AVA, Mokelumne River’s winegrowing history extends well into the 1800s. A mild Mediterranean climate influenced by proximity to a number of the Sacramento Delta’s waterways, the soils are very consistent with a mild slope draining off to the river. Hand-harvested in the early morning. Upon entering the winery, the clusters were hand-sorted prior to loading into harvest bins, which were subsequently sealed airtight. From the small pool of free-run juice, fermentation began and flooded the bins with CO2, initiating carbonic maceration inside of the grapes. Two bins were opened and pressed off after 10 days, finishing primary in barrel, and the other bins at 20 days. The wine was aged on fine lees in neutral barriques.  After 5 months, the wine is racked and bottled un-fined and unfiltered. Juicy red cherries, cranberries, raspberries, forest floor, potpourri spice, and a bit of white pepper, with a long, soft, velvety finish.
