This single vineyard bottling from Sequitur is two barrels composite.  Half of the composition was Clone 943, 100% destemmed and fermented in a terracotta amphora. This produced a luscious wine with ripe blue fruit and sweet earthy tones mixed with just a hint of red terracotta texture.  This was mixed with our favorite 50% whole cluster barrel. Always keeping it as natural as possible, we fermented with native yeasts, added a tiny touch of acid and minimal sulfur, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
