  • Winemaker: Joseph Ryan
  • Varieties: Trousseau
  • Farming: Sustainable
  • Terroir / Soils: Alder Springs vineyard
  • Vinification: Joseph bucketed all 2,666 pounds of fruit into the Egg, and kept it sealed. It spent one month in the Egg without any opening. Then shoveled it out, lightly pressed it in basket press and combined the free run and press into neutral barrel and puncheon. The wine was racked before bottling unfined and unfiltered without the use of sulfur at any point of production. 77 cases made.
  • Aging: Concrete egg
  • Tasting Notes: Mixed aromas of sour red berries, pine resin and an indescribable suggestion of salinity to top it all. At only 12% alcohol it is actually pretty assertive and vibrant on the palate. The sourness of the red fruit is fully revealed and framed by sharp acidity and medium dry tannins.
