2021 August White
Delivering both freshness and richness, the Folded Hills August White is a perfect balance of Grenache Blanc and Viognier. Winemaker Michael Brughelli monitors the vineyard carefully, then selects the optimal time for harvesting the grapes.
After harvest, the fruit is gently whole cluster pressed, and the fermentation happens naturally with ambient yeast. To highlight mouthfeel and a balance between the two varietals, the wine was aged for 5 months in mostly neutral French oak and 12.5% in stainless. The wine sat on gross lees, until being racked to tank for bottling. We are proud to share this 2021 vintage of August White with you.
