Sourced from the biodynamically farmed Filigreen Farm on the southwest flank of Anderson Valley, our selection of Pinot Noir is surrounded by an old grove of Chinese bamboo and is therefore named "The China Block." The 2018 vintage fermented on native yeast, with 50% whole clusters, and was pressed entirely by hand in our old hand-crank press. The wine completed malolactic fermentation naturally in barrel, and aged twelve months in French oak barrels, 50% new. We performed one racking to stainless steel prior to bottling, unfined and unfiltered. Four barrels; 100 cases produced.
