Pyren vineyard is a low cropping dry farmed site, always picking early due to the small yields and small berries. The pink granite soils lend a telltale smokiness and vibrancy to the palate. This site always seems to produce freshness even in the warmer years. Quartz laced pink granite soil - with heavy rock top soil. A low yielding, dry farmed vineyard. Small berries and small bunches. Fermented as 100% whole bunches, 60 day extended maceration, old oak and bottled unfiltered unfined.
