Variety: Pinot Noir
Anthill Farms is a group of three friends who went against all the odds to start a winery in California. They didn’t have money saved nor were they born into the business. They were cellar rats, the guys moving hoses and cleaning floors, for some pretty significant wineries, Williams Selyem being the most influential. However, while still quite young, the three decided to pull together a tiny amount of cash and started making wine at a crushpad facility. Before long the wines had a cult following and we’ve been drinking them ever since. Many of Anthill’s wines only make it to a mailing list or restaurants; we are lucky to include their small production wines.
This wine is a selection hailing from the barrels of Abbey Harris & Leal in the Boonville Ridges, and Baker Ranch & Forste in the Philo Ridges. Primarily grown in Bearwallow-Wolfey soils which contributes a light spiced element to the wine. This vintage is 50% whole-cluster with 3-Week native yeast fermentation, aged 12 months in French oak (25% new). Only 800 cases of this wine were produced.
