VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE

“Honeyed, creamy, vibrant. Vision is one of the new label series by Sperling Vineyards. This golden-hued Chardy doles out sweet peaches and yellow apples, honey and juicy lemony aromas. It is creamy and equally bright with no sharp edges. Honeyed and vibrant with impressive purity and a mineral textured finish. Delicious and lengthy; a notable wine.”

Daenna Van Mulligen, Wine Diva

Select blocks are hand harvested on cool September mornings at 13% potential alcohol, cluster sorted, then gently whole cluster pressed. Slightly settled juice is transferred to 500 L French oak puncheons to wild ferment and complete a native malolactic fermentation. Each barrel becomes a unique ferment with individual properties lending complexity to the wine. Select barrels are blended and bottled after 10-12 months of aging on lees. Batonage may be employed, but generally not a great deal.

Production Notes
The dominant soil feature is deep, mineralogical clay with properties of ultrafine limestone particles high in calcium (rated 2/3 & 3/3 by Herody), high in minerals and low to moderate in nitrogen. This highly sought-after soil-type is ideal for terroir driven Riesling and Pinot Noir, providing balanced mineral nutrition but requiring enriched levels of organic matter for optimal vine growth and grape berry nutrition for winemaking. These soils are also delicate so poor farming practices create hardpans. Other famous regions with comparable cool climate and this soil type, such as Burgundy have proven that vines, grown organically express the terroir most typically. Deep rooted vines can find their own water and nutrients for much of the season minimizing irrigation demands.
