Pinot Noir 100%
Produced with grapes from a number of mid elevation vineyards at an altitude of 1,200 - 1,500 along Mendocino Ridge. This is the most westerly area of Mendocino County, heavily influenced by the adjacent Pacific Ocean. At this elevation, the vineyards are close to the fog line, which provides an additional cooling influence and contributes to the freshness and acidity of the wines.
30% of the grapes are included as whole bunches. Fermentation is with natural yeasts. The wine is aged for 11 months in French Oak barrels, 33% new.
Very enjoyable now, but also has very good aging potential.
Jason and Molly Drew established Drew Family Wines in 2000, when they acquired an old apple orchard on Mendocino Ridge. They saw the potential of the site, with its old oceanic soils and south facing slopes, which ideally suited their objective of producing cool climate wines that reflect the character of the soils and the vine varieties. They planted their pinot noir vineyards with Californian and Dijon heritage clones.
