2013 "mbf" Primitivo
Don't miss out on this limited production reserve!
Speedy Creek Vineyard. I first hiked the Speedy Creek Vineyard in Knights Valley with owner Dave Burton in 2008. Speedy Creek refers to the 'speed' of their seasonal winter creek as it cascades down alongside their hillside vineyard. Dave's Primitivo grapes have an intensity of character reflective of this true hillside terroir.
Brenda's Winemaking. 2013 is our fifth vintage of Primitivo and our wnemaking approach remains consistent--gentle handling and oak aging. Fermentation took place in an open top tank, with 3 times per day punch-downs. The wine was barreled down and malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels for 18 months, with approximately 30% new Francois Freres barrels.
