Illahe Vineyards 2015 1899 Pinot Noir

This wine was hand picked and brought up to the winery by horse. Once at the winery, it was hand de-stemmed and the wine was placed into wooden fermenters. We let it ferment on its own after covering it. It soaked for 10 days. It was hand pressed in a wooden basket press, hand pumped into barrel, and encouraged through malolactic fermentation without inoculation. We got it to the bottle with no gas, corked it by hand, and applied a letterpress label. The 1899 never touched dry ice, canned nitrogen, enzymes, stainless steel, forklifts, packaged yeast, electric pumps, or filters. We brought it to storage with Doc and Bea, and this We brought the wine from the winery to our distributor, Casa Bruno in Portland via stagecoach, cargo bike, and canoe. So, the first time it enters your car, it will be in a whole different time.
