Like Pinot Noir, the Blaufränkisch grape has a wonderful transparency and is highly sensitive to its environment. Our goal is to find a consistency in expression of terroir over multiple grape varieties from our site. The estate Blaufränkisch shows a likeness to the sanguine and iron minerality that defines our Pinot Noir but with more nervy acidity and a darker, deeper fruit profile. In 2018, the blend included a mix of 60% destemmed and 40% whole cluster fermentations in small open-top macro bins. After fermentation, the wine aged for a total of 19 months in neutral, french oak barrels.
