Ampelos Cellars Sta. Hills Pinot Noir Lambda

Full moon on a friday night. The drive-in with your favorite date, dark chocolate covered raisinets and sticky cherry cola. Morning's sunrise with sweet thick-sliced french toast, pepper-rubbed slab bacon and freshly ground espresso beans. All of your favorite faces and places fill the recesses of your mind as you relax under your favorite oak tree. You're home. Lambda is "the magnitude" of what we do - it is our "home" at Ampelos! It is the culmination of what we see when we look out at our vineyard. It's a dream that became reality and continues to unfold and teaches us with every season. 24 months in oak barrels Clones are: 115, 667, 777, 2A, 828, Pommard

Production Method After we harvested the fruit, it will stay 1 day in our cold room to avoid using dry iceThe fruit is cold soaked for about 3 days and then the natural wild yeast will kick in for the primary fermentationWe hand punch down twice a day to assist the extraction of colors, tannins and flavorsWhen it has completed primary fermentation, we may elect to continue with extended maceration which allows more extraction of colors and flavorsAfter completed primary fermentation we let the fermenters continue with extended maceration up to one monthWe separated the free run, press off the rest and barrel down the individual batchesThen the second fermentation (converts malolatic acid to lactic acid) kicks in utilizing the natural wild malolactic bacteria The wine is barrel aged for about 30 months in 1/3 new French oakThe wine is unfined and unfiltered.
