2016 Auxerrois 1.5L
The second vintage of our Auxerrois is drawn from the same block of younger Auxerrois vines planted at Zenith Vineyard, in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. We made slightly more of this wine in 2016, enough to fill six barrels, including a stainless steel barrel. Fermentation took place in barrel, and full malolactic fermentation took place over the winter. This wine reveals the primary orchard fruit character of the Auxerrois grape along with some warm, toastier notes and manifests a bright, saline acidity.
