ABOUT THIS WINE
This wine comes entirely from Martian Ranch Vineyard in Alisos Canyon AVA. Martian Ranch has been farmed biodynamically since its inception and has been Demeter certified since 2010. Alisos Canyon AVA lies directly in the middle of Santa Ynez Valley AVA and Santa Maria AVA and has a unique set of both AVA’s characteristics. This vineyard lies on the hills of the San Antonio Creek Valley, it gets warm in the day, and cools off with coastal fog in the evening. The soils are rich in calcium from the Paso and Sisquoc formations and are composed of weathered sandstone, shale, and marly limestone.
The grapes were harvested in the early morning - half of the bins were foot crushed to macerate on skins overnight while the other half rested as whole bunches. Early the next morning the grapes were pressed lightly together in the bladder press and the juice was sent to tank to settle overnight. This Albariño fermented partially in stainless and partially in neutral French oak barrels. It spent elevage in neutral French oak until combining the barrels a month before bottling in a stainless tank. This wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered in March of 2022.
