Prima Materia USD 28.00 750ml

Prima Materia Mourvedre 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

72 cases made Spontaneously fermented in t-bins, 20% whole cluster, 15 days to dryness. Approximately 200# of pressed Refosco skins added at 10th day of fermentation. Wood basket pressed. 2 years in barrel – 2 neutral, plus 1 barrel with some oak life Never racked, no SO2 for first 12 months, 30 ppm free at bottling. Hand bottled. Vineyard: Phil Lovett’s vineyard overlooks Clear Lake at 1,700’ elevation on a steep NE facing hillside. Not certified organic but extremely hands off, very little vineyard input due to heavy winds from overlooking the lake that keeps mildew and pests at bay. Incredibly thick skins produced the worst yield at pressing I have ever seen. The label image depicts the green lion eating the sun (“vitriol” purifying matter and yielding gold) in a 1622 alchemy text. This image is a source of much controversy both in the chemical sense and metaphysical context, not uncommon in the highly interpretive alchemical arts.
