N T E R L U D E 2 0 1 0 ~ CABERNET FRANC 100%
All the significant soil types of the renowned vineyards in the world exist in our estate vineyards. Limestone, the wonder soil calcium montmorillonite, as well as our own backyard volcano provide the most mineral and nutrient rich of soils — sublime terroir for the perfect Cabernet Franc.
The Interlude vineyard flourishes on the top of a volcano, indeed grows in the very magma like no other wine known. Interlude is a supreme example of mineral-rich, sustainability with an endowment of viticultural treasures unmatched in the world. And flavors are directly the result of nutrients in the soil. No nutrients… no natural flavors.
We honor these sublime gifts by creating the natural wine, no additives, filtering, or oak domination… yes, true terroir!
Long, careful aging in a “cellar” environment ~ up to 40 months ~ ensures nature’s perfection without compromise.
