‘Vinferno’, Bonny Doon Vineyards

2013 brought an incredible opportunity for a truly late harvest wine to be produced from Beeswax Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. Typically this vineyard’s fruit is harvested nearly into November, but in 2013, it was harvested for our Cigare Blanc in the first week of October. This allowed us to leave a portion of the Grenache Blanc in the vineyard for another 5 weeks to naturally dry and concentrate sugar and flavor on the vine. We hand picked the fruit and gently pressed whole cluster at the winery. The resulting juice was 31.8 brix and was slowly cold fermented in 100% stainless steel.
