Dashe Cellars

2014 Zinfandel, Late Harvest, Dry Creek Valley - Dashe Cellars 375 ml

This dessert wine is made from grapes grown on the Lily Hill Vineyard, owned by Bella Winery in northern Dry Creek Valley. The steep slopes and rocky soil at Bella make the vines struggle to survive, which in turn help the vines create very concentrated, complex grapes. One of the reasons that we love this vineyard is the wonderful acidity of the grapes. Even when we wait an extra four weeks to harvest the grapes, the grapes maintain their acidity. The resulting wine is focused and clear it is never cloying, and always finishes with a crisp, clean, sweet spicy note.

We harvested in mid October, and the grapes arrived at the winery right at 40 Brix of sugar. We crushed the grapes into a small 1,500 gallon tank and as is our tradition at Dashe Cellars, we fermented the grapes naturally, using the native yeasts that naturally live on the skins of the grapes. Since the grapes were super ripe, the fermentation roared off at the start, and then rapidly slowed as the yeast created over 10% alcohol. The fermentation finally sputtered to a halt when the alcohol had reached about 14% and the sugar level was slightly over 12%. We always allow the wine to achieve its balance of sweetness and alcohol naturally, by letting the fermentation finish up on its own. As is our tradition, the wine was aged in older French oak barrels to not overpower the intensity of the fruit. We decided to stay with our tradition of bottling the wine as soon as possible to maintain its fresh fruit flavors and conserve its sweet concentration and purity. The wine is unfined and received minimal handling to the bottle.
