Single Vineyard Savagnin from Willow Grove.
20yr old, north facing vines, own rooted and never irrigated.
This vineyard site is beautiful but when I found it the vineyard itself was not. Overgrown with blackberries and vines dying back from trunk disease, It's been a fight to get it back into shape to say the least.
The Blackberry label is ode to all the physical and emotional pain they caused and a reminder that the struggle can be worth it.
14% alcohol but with a PH of 3.1 (that means lots of acidity), this wine is a powerhouse. The wine was barrel fermented and left untopped for the year. It's Rich and saline, nutty and creamy but with loads of fruit character keeping it fresh and bright.
