Description

This mature, trellised Zinfandel ripens with brambly intense flavors. These ridge-top grapes provide what Sonoma does better than any other place – Zinfandel.

Brehm Vineyards first explored this vineyard in 2011 during a very cool, wet season. We were impressed with the quality of fruit and the resulting wine. The high elevation offers coolness during the day, and warm nights. Air movement allows good conditions within the canopy.  These are cool climate grapes, they come in late, and that is what Peter likes.

Plum Ridge Vineyard 2018 Zinfandel notes:

Brix: 27.4
pH: 3.17
TA: 4.6 g/l

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.

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.
