The 2018 St Georges derives primarily from the elegant, floral, very small-berried pinot of the decades-old Besson planting at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains. To its register of expansive red floral notes we add the muscular, brooding, deeply-flavored old selections of pinot from a couple of vineyards planted 1800’ up in the Chalone AVA . These sites together bring exceptionally textured depth and lifted aromatics to this dynamic Central Coast bottling. Fermentation averaged about 35% whole cluster, with a higher proportion of the Chalone lots left whole, and after several days in stainless and bins, native fermentation got going, and we put a preliminary blend down to cement tank and neutral barrel in October. We racked just once when final barrel selections were made, prior to bottling unfiltered in July of 2019.
