Vintage: 2006

 

 

 

The 2006 Harvest again provided Fiasco Brothers Winery the opportunity to craft multiple wines. We were able to harvest some excellent Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from a small, well-known vineyard in Sonoma County. And we were very excited to find Chardonnay grapes from a newer vineyard in southern Sonoma County for our very first white wine. Here are the details you need to know:

 

 

Chardonnay:

These grapes were picked from a newer vineyard in Southern Sonoma County near the Carneros District of Napa. The grapes were immediately de-stemmed/crushed and then pressed with a traditional ratchet press. The wine underwent a secondary fermentation in the barrel in November 2006. The wine is aging in American Oak barrels until bottling in June/July 2007.

 

         1,100 pounds harvested

         24.0 brix initial

 

Cabernet Sauvignon:

The grapes for this wine were picked from a small vineyard just west of Healdsburg, after we sampled the vineyard to pick just the right grapes. The grapes were immediately de-stemmed/crushed and a traditional yeast starter was used. After 18 days on the skins the wine was pressed and transferred to American Oak barrels for aging. The wine will undergo secondary fermentation in the barrel in early 2007. The wine is anticipated to be bottled in June/July 2008.

 

         550 pounds harvested

         24.5 brix initial
