Name:

“The Wild Bramble”, an ode to our tradition of whole cluster fermentations at Cristom. 

Wine Notes:

In 1992, Cristom Vineyards was founded upon the bold embrace of whole cluster inclusion in Pinot noir fermentations. This practice is part of us, written into our genetic script as a quintessential element of our house style. We find the inclusion of an appropriate concentration of whole clusters can yield a wine of integrative structure, enveloping fruit and umami in a way that evokes the memory of a berry bramble on a warm day and carries a tension that lends well to age worthiness. Our 2021 ¡Salud! Cuvée submission is a blend of three individual fermentations of estate fruit, each with some of the highest whole cluster percentages of vintage. 

Aging:

Aged for 11 months in French oak and 65% whole cluster, this wine captures everything we love in a balanced, whole cluster-driven Pinot noir.

Release Date:

October or November 2023
