DESCRIPTION

Mathis Vineyard - Early Morning, Grenache, Sonoma ValleyMathis Vineyard covers a 7.5 acre plot, situated in the hills above the town of Sonoma, on a warm, south-facing slope. The soils are volcanic in origin, low vigor, with underlying rhyolitic rock. The nearby San Francisco Bay, visible from the vineyard, provides a cooling influence and allows for extended hang time at harvest. The 2008 vintage yielded 2.8 tons per acre.

HARVEST

Small, open top fermenters (1.5 ton capacity). Only native yeasts are used (100%). 3 punch-downs per day. Fermentations averaged 10.5 days in 2008.
