Chardonnay 50% Pinot Noir 50%
Our 2013 Fifty 50 is the next step in a concept wine began in 2012, where we take equal lots of two wines and blend them to create a unique experience. This vintage of Fifty 50 is composed of two lots that were crafted and aged separately. The pinot noir was treated as a white wine, directly pressed, and aged in older oak for two years. The chardonnay was whole cluster pressed aged on the lees in stainless steel for one year and barreled down for an additional year to soften the acidity. The two lots were blended, bottled and aged in the cellar for an additional year.
