Bianco di Trinoro 2018

ABOUT THE VINTAGE

After the sweltering summer of 2017, we welcomed the cooler, more even temperatures of 2018 in the valley. As we neared the end of August, we were
looking at larger than usual clusters, not too sweet for the period, and unusually soft in their early fruit. Because of these cooler temperatures, the
vineyards were able to ripen the fruit and tannins earlier; all of that is usually kept back because of heat in August. The skins, thin as they were, were incredibly forward in color – they stained the fingers! Usually, that happens in mid-October. Mysterious for now, fascinating. This vintage will be an original one.

Autumn might already be around the corner – cool, damp weather has entered the valley, and the moon rise is speeding things up. Already in midSeptember, on the 14th, we began the harvest of our semillon, picking just enough for 2,000 bottles.
These we pressed whole-cluster and were impressed by the lean, strong gusto in the juice. After fermenting, the wine will stay on its lees in glass demi-johns for a year and then go to bottle for 8 months before we release it, the second vintage of our Bianco di Trinoro.
