2017 Old Saint George
Filigreen Farm - Pinot Noir
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 2017 vintage on naturally occurring yeasts in concrete, with 50% stem inclusion. We pressed entirely by hand. The wine aged in 50% new French oak for twelve months. We racked to steel and bottled unfined, and unfiltered. Two and a quarter barrels; 60 cases produced.
