2019 Paper Street Vineyard Clairette Blanche
In the Willow Creek District lies Paper Street Vineyard. This land was used for barley and almonds until the mid-1990’s but was mostly abandoned until the Dusi family planted vines here. The limestone-white hills, hot days, and cool nights make for concentrated, vibrant, and mineral-driven wines.
Whole cluster pressed into stainless steel. Long, slow, cool fermentation at 60F and aged in neutral 265 L barrique, 500 L puncheon and stainless steel. Partial malolactic acid fermentation. Aged 10 months prior to bottling.
