Like the vineyards of Graves, the source of much celebrated Bordeaux Blanc, and the model for this wine, the vines are planted in gravely soil along the bank of Dry Creek. The Alder Grove vineyard provides shaded habitat for spawning fish, and the trees’ roots nourish the soils in which the grapes for this wine are grown.
Both small and large French oak barrel were used during the winemaking process, with an addition of barrels made from Acacia wood. Approximately 15% of cooperage is new. 80% barrel fermented and aged with 20% stainless fermented and aged.
