Alium explores another depth of expression from our ever-evolving Pinot Gris vineyard. Forty days of skin maceration roots Alium in an earthbound tone and bends Antiquum Farm's tropicality toward an herbaceous savory character, while the textural tension lends layers of density and intrigue.
This wine is a testament to the untamed heart, soul, and mind, of our son, Juel. Juel is never predictable and is unintereseed in the prescribed constraints of the the status quo. This Pinot Noir follows his example.
Passiflora captures the most ethereal and eccentric voice of Antiquum Farm in a stunningly elegant profile. From the highest elevations of the site displaying floral and tropical tones, this wine is a Pinot Noir unlike any other.
Aurosa showcases a charming, light golden rose color and unique hibiscus tea and rose hip tones. Slight wisps of lavender, violets, and tea rose intermingle with citrus, river stone, and steel. A layered, tannic texture compliments and supports the profile of this unique and intriguing expression of Pinot Gris.
The lower elevations in the vineyard hold a one-acre parcel of vines straddling a seam between two clonal blocks. This small section of the site expresses the dark and brooding voice of Antiquum Farm. Firmly earth-rooted, its structure is a rich foundation expressing a Pinot Noir of unparalleled power and depth.
