Vineyard Notes: In 1858, Emil Dresel brought the first Sylvaner cuttings to America and planted them on what is now the Scribe Estate in Sonoma, California. In homage, the Mariani brothers planted one acre of Sylvaner in 2007 on the southwest-facing hillside slope of Arrowhead Mountain. This organically farmed Sylvaner vineyard is composed of both volcanic tuff and Huichica loam soil.
2017 Vintage Notes: Record-breaking winter rains, a mild spring and multiple heat waves near the end of the growing season kicked off an early start to a fast-paced harvest.
Winemaking Notes: After harvest on August 23rd, the Sylvaner underwent a 5-week cold fermentation in stainless steel. It aged on its lees for 3 months. The wine was bottled on January 9th, 2018.
