The early growing season also allowed us to take advantage of the warmer summer months to accelerate ripening. The 2013 is 100% from the Woodruff Family Vineyard. We picked roughly equal parts from the Terraces and the North Block and whole cluster pressed them together to a concrete egg for fermentation.
Post-fermentation, the wine was left in concrete sur lies during the Malolactic fermentation and the better part of the 19 month elevage.
