Farmed by Lee & Chancy Croft, this vineyard was planted with Pommard & Wadenswil clones in 1985 and sits at 380 feet elevation on southeast facing slopes. Bellpine soils characterize the site with silty clay loam and uplifted seabed over sandstone parent material giving the wine a particular intensity without being overtly tannic or overripe. Native yeast fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel with 50% stem inclusion. 12 months aging in French oak - 50% new, 25% second use, 25% neutral - François Frères, Rousseau & Remond barrels.
