2021 Estate Marsanne
This is Folded Hills third vintage of Estate Marsanne and it's a beautiful balance of elegance and delicacy. Coming from our Creekside Vineyard sitting directly behind our Homestead Tasting Room, this unique planting makes up 20% of our whites planted. Winemaker Michael Brughelli monitors the vineyard carefully, then selected the optimal time for harvesting the grapes.
After harvest, the fruit is gently whole cluster pressed, and the fermentation happens naturally with ambient yeast. The complex structure is balanced perfectly with acidity and ripeness and leads directly into a long beeswax finish. The wine was aged on its lees for 10 months in neutral French oak barrels. The bright acid in this wine will allow it to be enjoyed now or for years to come.
