100% Valdiguié from Frei and Wirth Ranch Vineyards.
From the winery:
Grapes went through partial carbonic fermentation, which combined with lighter tannins from the 2016 vintage, makes for an easy drinking light bodied elegant wine. 2016 had very low yields, almost half than typically expected.
Both dry-farmed vineyards are over 65 years old and are located just a mile apart from each other, between Napa and Suisun Valley. Valdiguié was formerly known as Napa Gamay in California. Wirth is planted on steep-sloped, iron-rich soils, while Frei is located closer to the valley floor and has more acidic soils.
