The 2019 Alium explores another depth of expression from our ever-evolving Pinot Gris vineyard. We didn't set out to make this kind of wine, rather Alium gradually revealed itself to us over succeeding vintages. The wine hails from the western-most part of the vineyard, a section of approximately twelve rows. This is always the last Pinot Gris fruit to be harvested each year, so the grape skins have ample time to develop incredible depth and textural complexity. Thirty 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.
