Hundred Suns Sequitur Vineyard Pinot noir 2015

After walking the Sequitur Vineyard since its inception, Grant decided to pick 3 blocks composed of a mixed bag of Heritage and Dijon clones. At the winery, we filled one fermenter with 50% whole cluster, and the rest we fully destemmed directly into a 400L amphora. These two different treatments created a wine from the fermentor with spice, depth and character and an altogether different wine from the amphora with soft, supple curves. We selected one barrel of each, weaving together a wine of open textures, spice, and dark fruit. This wine changes like a chameleon over the course of a meal.

This single vineyard bottling from Sequitur is two barrels composite.  Half of the composition was Clone 943, 100% destemmed and fermented in a terracotta amphora. This produced a luscious wine with ripe blue fruit and sweet earthy tones mixed with just a hint of red terracotta texture.  This was mixed with our favorite 50% whole cluster barrel.  Always keeping it as natural as possible, we fermented with native yeasts, added a tiny touch of acid and minimal sulfur, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
