2018 Oak Farm Vineyards Primitivo
This Primitivo has captivating aromas of dried plums, dark chocolate, and vanilla spice. It has a big mouth-feel that balances ripe red fruit, round tannins, and all spice. All these layers lead to full bodied, elegant, and complex wine.
Estate Vineyard to the west of our tasting room and production facility. Bilateral cordon trained into, T-trellis “California sprawl.” Clone 3 on 039-16 rootstock. Planted in 2012, the vines are young and full of energy. Pruning and shoot thinning were done to keep cluster counts in balance, leaves were pulled on the north side of the vine as the rows oriented east to west. 2016 was the first vintage we harvested fruit from this vineyard.
These grapes were shoot thinned, cluster thinned and leaves were pull during the growing season. Grapes were hand-picked and then delivered to Oak Farm Vineyards on September 22nd, 2018. Upon receiving the grapes, they were hand sorted at the winery and then de-stemmed to tank where they received a cold soak. The must was inoculated and fermentation was done in tank with regular timed pump overs. This wine was aged in 20% new American oak and the rest was aged in neutral oak.
