this wine is a blend of clone 2a pinot noir from the certified biodynamic chene vineyard i farm, and clone 1 sauvignon blanc from the neighboring, oliver's vineyard, both in edna valley.
both grapes were foot stomped and soaked on skins for 24 hours before whole bunch pressing. the juice was fermented separately with native yeast in neutral oak barrels and aged on lees for 7 months before it's first racking to blend before bottling, without filtration.
think pink lemonade, citrus popsicles & rainier cherries.
