pH: 3.20
TA: 0.59

Nube Bianco Vineyard
The vineyard is planted to true Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains (France), also known as Moscato Bianco (Italy). It is one of the original Muscat genera, certainly the best for still wine production, and especially for dry still wine. It lies on the eastside of Potter Valley, southwest facing. The soil is Yokayo Series, left from river deposits dating back 100,000 years. We harvested on the morning of October 12, 2013.

Wine Making
The fruit was whole cluster pressed and settled for two days. It was then racked to a small stainless tank where a cold fermentation to dryness took place over three weeks. The dry wine and all solids were then transferred to neutral Francois Freres barrels. The lees were stirred every two weeks for three months. It was racked to the bottling tank for settling mid February and was bottled on March 21, 2014.
