"Let's be honest, we all have a few secrets hidden away in the cellar. Our Family Secret has to do with an old world style of winemaking. Focused acidity, barrel fermentation and low brix makes this one a secret worth sharing. Try it out, whisper it to a friend. We won't tell." - Jordan Kivelstadt, Wayward Son
Eco Terreno is the largest biodynamically farmed contiguous vineyard in Alexander Valley. The vineyard incorporates cover crops, bee gardens, husbandry and limited water usage.
Half of the pressed-juice is naturally fermented in neutral French oak barrels, while the other half gets the same treatment in stainless steel. Malolactic Fermentation is allowed to proceed in the barrels, after which it spends 6 months sur lie. Afterwards, the wines are blended.
The oak fermentation brings texture and depth, which is balanced by a racy zing from the stainless tank. Look for notes of orange blossom, citrus, mild tropical aromas.
