Verdejo "A Space Oddity"
100% Verdejo from Heringer Vineyard in Clarksburg AVA (Yolo County). Clay/Loam soils, very fertile. Certified sustainable in conversion to organic.
The fruit was 1/3 skin fermented until dry, 1/3 direct press, 1/3 macerated on the skins for 12 hours. Barrel aged in neutral french oak for 10 months separately. After blending trials, Chris decided that the wine showed best when everything was blended together.
