2018 Petite Arvine

2018 Petite Arvine Edaphos - Ernest Vineyards
$42.00   750mL

Native to the Valais of Switzerland and Valle D’Aosta in Italy, it buds early and ripens late, which lends itself to mountainous plantings at elevation. Long, tight clusters of small berries with hard skins and a pale lime and gray hue. It maintains acid well post veraison and slowly develops beautiful floral aromatics and flavors of stone fruit.
Vinification: Direct pressed without sulfur and cold settled overnight. Laid down to neutral wood and stainless steel barrels. Slow, cool primary fermentation over 10 months. Filtered due to incomplete malolactic and bottled with 20 ppm SO2.
