Old Saint George - Pinot Noir 2019
Anderson Valley, Mendocino County
Sourced from the biodynamically farmed Filigreen Farm, the “Old Saint George” is selected from old-clone Pinot Noir grafted onto 65-year-old Saint George rootstock. This block ripens more slowly than the rest of the vineyard, and produces wines of greater flavor sophistication and higher acidity. We fermented our lot of the 2019 vintage on naturally occurring yeasts in stainless steel, with 50% stem inclusion. We pressed entirely by hand. The wine aged in one-third new French oak barrels for twelve months. We racked to steel and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Three barrels; 67 cases produced.
