100%- 115 Pinot Noir Clone from Savoya Vineyard
This wine is the product of a special canopy management system that Ken experimented with after learning of this practice on his visit to Bruno Rocca vineyard in Italy several years ago. This approach precludes hedging. As the shoots extend beyond the height of the trellis, rather than being cut, they are wrapped around the top catch wire. The philosophy of the Rocca family was that by not cutting on the plant, they were reducing the shock of hedging. In this case, shock would mean a temporary stall of the vine's development and the process of ripening.
