  • Description
  • Technical Information

The season was again very early, and we harvested the vineyard on August 31st at 25.6 Brix. This is a little higher Brix than we would like, but for the Tiara, we waited about a week after we first went through and picked for the Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, to see if we could get more intensity from the vineyard. The grapes were whole cluster pressed along with 9% Semillon from the Alsace Vineyard, and all of the wine was barrel fermented with VL3 yeast. It stayed in barrel until early May (almost 9 months), to integrate and balance its very large and opulent proportions.
