Free Form wines are made naturally with zero cellar intervention; reflective of our terroir, farming practices and vintage. This wine was made from Sauvignon Blanc (72-1103P) harvested on October 15. Fermented using native yeast in stainless steel. After full malolactic fermentation and five months of skin contact the wine was pressed and bottled with no filtration and no additives in August 2015.
Bright orange hue with fresh notes of straw, flint and mineral aromas overlapping with vibrant tropical fruit. Fine, integrated tannins carry amazing purity of fruit with delicate acidity and complexity only found in natural winemaking.
