With each of our single vineyard wines at Scott Paul, we take a purposefully simple approach to our winemaking.
During fermentation, we gently work the wine by pumping it over the top of its skins. This ensures a gentle extraction of tannin and imparts an element of length and structure. We couple this practice with a soft punch-down of the fruit that allows us to control the amount of extraction.
Knowing that Mother Nature gives us a new set of challenges each year, we’re always open to adjusting our winemaking technique to ensure that we have the purest expression from the vineyard and accurately portray the vintage in our wine. Each vintage is different. The same winemaking recipe doesn’t work for every single year or fruit source.
Biodynamically Farmed. Brilliantly dark red in color. This wine gives up an iconic Dundee Hills spice with pitters of potpourri, blackberries, and strawberry jam. The generous attack, silky mineral structure and perfect fruit balance takes
your pallet to an incredibly long finish. This is a spectacular wine to age!
