Brehm Fruit - Zinfandel - Ivy Glenn, Sonoma Mountain AVA, CA 2013

60 day no hassle return policy. Details

Ivy Glen Vineyard was planted to wine grapes around 1900 with standard varieties, including Zinfandel.  This amounts to about 16% of the wine.  The remaining wine grape source was planted under our management after 1972.

We are in the Sonoma Mountain AVA.  The vineyard elevation is between 758-834 feet facing south east.  Frost is rare.  Protection is by temperature inversion and hillside air drainage.  Leaf and shoot thinning is done by hand.  The vines are drip irrigated and planted in Sonoma volcanic soil.  Harvest is during September to early October.

Ivy Glenn Vineyard 2013 Zinfandel notes:

Brix: 27

Yeast Recommendations

Below please find some notes associated with our recommended yeast strains for use with this fruit. It is important to note that any yeast will in fact perform the fermentation, however these strains have consistently performed well and produced flavors that our customers have been very happy with. To that end, the "correct" yeast strain is simply the one that sounds to you as though it will make the flavors that you are looking for in your wine.

You can add the yeast strain of your choice from the "You Might Also Need" section below. We also strongly recommend the use of the additive pack that you will see listed in this section as it will help enhance the quality of the wine you produce. Order one packet of yeast and one additive pack per pail of must or juice.

ICV-D254:  Usually used as a blending component, D254 gives stone fruit flavours, aromas of nuts, smoke, and sourdough, along with a creamy mouthfeel. Good for adding complexity and mouthfeel to a blend.

GRE: Brings fresh fruit forward along with spice and violet aromas. Good mouthfeel enhancement, as well. Effective for reducing herbaceous and vegetal notes in under-ripe fruit.

BM45: Big mouthfeel, emphasizes the fruit and structure along with some earthy and spicy elements. Good color stability and helps to minimize vegetative characters.
Rhône 4600: Apricot and tropical fruit with enhanced mouthfeel contribution. Delivers fat roundness and balance along with light esters. Good as a blending component.
