Old Vine Valdiguie (circa 1940’s) organically grown in the ‘Redvine Series’ sandly clay loam soils of the Buddha Dharma Vineyard, City of 10,000 Buddhas in Ukiah. Picked early to preserve acidity and whole cluster pressed to a combination of stainless and neutral barrels for fermentation and subsequent 6 month elevage. Bright bitter orange and grapefruit citrus, strawberry, fennel with a Campari like quinine appeal. 11.2 % ABV.
