WINEMAKERS Matt Dumayne, Alberto Antonini
WINEMAKING 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 mid-September and was fermented using native yeast in stainless steel. After full malolactic fermentation and nine months of skin contact, the wine was pressed and bottled unfiltered.
WINE PROFILE Fresh notes of straw, flint and mineral aromas overlap vibrant tropical fruit. Fine integrated tannins carry amazing purity of fruit with delicate acidity and complexity only found in natural winemaking.
