Bush Crispo Pinot Noir was harvested on Sunday, August 23rd…
With some of the smallest clusters Winemaker Jeff Gaffner has seen in years.
“It’s great,” Jeff says. “If you think about the juice-to-pulp ratio, the smaller the berries, the tighter that ratio is, which means more flavor, more phenolics.”
It’s all about concentration: the flavors, most of which come from the grapes’ skins, are concentrated to a much smaller amount of juice than in previous years. Throughout the fermentation and aging process, we’ll have the opportunity to discover how this makes the 2015 Bush Crispo Pinot Noir unique from previous vintages. And we can’t wait to taste what’s to come.
