2018 Folktale Pinot Noir/Syrah Co-Ferment
10 months French Oak
1 Ton open top fermenter, 17 days
A collaboration wine crafted by Sam Berketa from Alpha Box & Dice, our partner winery in Australia, and Folktale’s own, David Baird. While the adults weren’t looking, the two decided to make a special blend to commemorate the 2018 vintage. De-stemmed Pinot Noir was placed atop whole cluster Syrah grapes to ferment natively in a single bin. The result... if it hadn’t turned out so tasty, they would both be grounded.
Pinot Noir - Mission Ranch Vineyard; Syrah - Cedar Lane Vineyard
Picked on the same day from two different vineyards, the Pinot Noir and Syrah were both hand picked and arrived at Folktale in the morning. The Syrah was sorted whole cluster and placed in the fermentation tank and the Pinot Noir was de-stemmed on top. Both cold soaked for 2 days before fermenting natively for 17 days. When dry, the grapes were pressed and placed into neutral French Oak for 10 months for aging. The wine was bottled at the end of July.
