Graciano 'Portico' Santa Barbara County - 2021

Graciano's fruit forward tendencies, Portico Hills grippy terrior, and 2021's generous presence of acidity gives this wine a sense of prudence. Inky purple, blackberry bramble, and silky taught tannins. Early elegance in its confident posture, its most desirable traits will be there for those who wait.

  • Country:United States
  • Harvest Technique:Hand harvested
  • Soil:calcareous soils
  • Fermentation:Fermented 25% whole clusters are hand stired and punched down in 1.5ton open top fermenters. Cold soaked for 3-5 days allow chemistry to stabilize and “steeps” out the subtle fruit nuances acquired during cold extraction. Fermentation takes an additional 10 days post cold soak in a warmer environment.
  • Elevage:Pressed directly to barrel and aged on the heavy lees through malolactic fermentation. This offers more midpalate and pliable texture, rounding out the compact structure. Racked off the heavy lees post malolactic fermentation and returned to barrel for further aging. This wine is raised in 15% new oak for 10 months.
