“Tears of Vulcan”
44% Viognier, 35% Pinot Gris, 21% Muscat. Grapes are destemmed and co-fermented in 1.5-ton fermenters, no sulfur at crush, and fermentation kicks off natively. The grapes are macerated and left on the skins through primary fermentation for 8 days, then pressed off into neutral oak for 5 months. Only a minimal amount of sulfur is used post-MLF, just before bottling.
