Winemaking Notes: This 100% biodynamic, hand harvested, single vineyard Pinot Noir is aged and fermented completely in stainless steel and concrete egg with indigenous yeast. There is no fining or filtering. A low amount of SO2 is added.
Tasting Notes: The wine shows bright raspberry, strawberry jam, with rose petals, violets, and a light component of baking bread. The wine is extremely vibrant with a light, glassy, soft, and smooth midpalate. The light tannin cradles the wine and lends itself to the refreshing acidity with a long, jam influenced.
