Vineyard Notes: The vineyards are farmed organically and sustainably. Currently (as of 2017) about 80% of his wines are made from estate fruit. Sulfur is sprayed to protect against mildew. Irrigation is limited and mainly used to help the young vines stay healthy. The crop loads reflect the natural balance of the vine. The grapes are harvested at the peak of ripeness to produce wines that are rich and concentrated.
2016 Vintage Notes from Vinous 9/2018: “Trevisan’s 2016s display the usual depth of flavor and velvety texture for which his wines are known, but they also show an element of aromatic freshness and detail as well as energy on the palate that makes them extremely pleasant to drink, even now.”
Winemaking Notes: In the cellar, Matt uses a healthy balance of art and science. Grapes co-ferment to achieve balance and complex flavors. Fermentation tanks are not heated or cooled as Matt let’s the wines evolve naturally. Sulfites are rarely added before bottling.
Aging: 18 months in 3,000-liter foudre, 2,000-liter concrete tank, and a couple of 500-liter puncheons
Tasting Notes: The 2016 Rising Tides is fresh and lively with bright acidity; it's quite quenching. Red fruit is balanced by plush tannins. A true testament to the Willow Creek District, this wine will age well. Drink now through 2025.
