Vineyard Notes
Yorkville Cellars is in Yorkville Highlands, Mendocino County, CA, 1.5hrs north of Sonoma. This vineyard is farmed by Ed Wallo and fully organic from its inception. It features purely Bordeaux varietals. Planted in the early 2000's.
Production Notes
Produced at the Coturri Winery. All 6 tons of the Sauv Blanc came in at once and was all direct pressed to tanks to ferment. This was a long night. Pressing off 1.5 tons at a time through the old basket press. The Semillon was much easier, soaking and pressing off at a later date.
Winemaker Notes
The Sauv Blanc was picked first and fermented in stainless steel. The Semillon came in 2 weeks later and soaked on skins for 6 days before pressing off to neutral barrel to finish fermenting. All wines were racked once for blending and bottled early. Resulting in last slight spritz in the bottle.
