Grape variety: Pinot noir & chardonnay
Appellation: Willamette Valley
Region: Oregon USA
Soil: Volcanic and sedimentary
Average Vine Age: N/A
Farming practices: Sustainable, hand-harvested fruit.
Vinification: Piquette is made by taking the grapes leftover after their first pressing. Once the press cycle is finished, the pomace is put in a fermenter. Water is added and the grapes soak in the water for 24-36 hours. The grapes are then drained and pressed off. This juice is then fermented in stainless steel at a cool temperature for a long, slow, fermentation.
Aging: The wine is kept cold to keep the CO2 from fermentation in the wine. It is racked off the gross lees and bottled with a very low amount of SO2 added (10ppm).
