Second day harvest

September 22. Starting again at 6am, we picked the last 2 parts of the “O Block”. We again instructed the pickers to be extra vigilant, just as on day 1, and also again went through each of the bins as well.

Pinot Noir

The “O Block” has a European Pinot Noir clone but we do not really know exactly what it is. That whole block was planted, self rooted, in 1990.

The 2 blocks were vinified separately in 2 open top fermenters, approx 2,200 lb in each. Wild ferment was started the same way as with the previous vats, and again with approx. 50% stem inclusion.
