Antiquum Farm 'Daisy' Pinot Gris 2019
We are very excited to have the new vintage of Antiquum Farm's 'Daisy' Pinot Gris!
Winemaker Stephen Hagen believes wines should have a sense of place, down to what they are fertilized with. The farmer/winemaker raises sheep as well as grapes, and uses their fertilizer to feed his vines. He also uses draft horses in the vineyard rather than machinery.
He says, "I farm the way I do because that’s how I like it. I’m not drawn to tractors and big trucks. A perfectly crafted pile of compost ready to leave the barnyard for the pommard block which was grazed by producers of said compost is poetry at Antiquum Farm. Wheat, grown in the vineyard, cut and piled in the vine rows smothers weeds. Poultry scratching for the wheat further weeds the vineyard returning the grain in fertilizer form to the vines. Complete cycles of life are the center of our growing philosophy. They are the reason Antiquum wines are richly distinctive and eloquent."
Notes from the winery:
'Daisy' is focused, precise, and all about refined texture, minerality and crisp acidity. Vibrant citrus and floral components blend seamlessly with pomme fruit, lemon curd, pear, river stone and metallic nuance. The wine rests on the lees in barrel for 8 months in 50/50 stainless/neutral French oak. The lees are gently stirred to build texture before finally allowing the wine to settle naturally.
