We hand-harvested the clone 667 from the block, which is one of the smallest parcels from the vineyard, and co-fermented it with clone 114 as whole bunch/clusters. We kept it on skins post fermentation for a longer maceration. A structured wine with natural balance and extremely fine tannin. It was matured in oak, mostly older French with just a touch of new.
This wine received no fining and no filtration so it may have a natural sediment from its time ageing in bottle. We didn’t think that Plume needed to have intervention of these winemaking practices because the quality of the fruit was so good, and we didn’t want to take away from any of that. It is also made to spend time in bottle before it is to be consumed.
Ageing potential – 10 years and beyond.
