Winemaking Notes: The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards that have been manually harvested and farmed using organic and biodynamic practices. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Aged in tank for 10 months, this wine is unfiltered with no added sulfites. The wine was bottled on a fruit day.

Tasting Notes: This is a medium-bodied wine, with balanced, bright tannins. Floral, spicy notes with a touch of cedar.
