Antiquum Farm Perpetua Rubrum Pinot Noir II
A few years ago we began asking how to continue deepening our understanding of the terroir of Antiquum Farm. What we recognized was the tension between the grapes we pick each year and the grapevine itself. It seemed simple to acknowledge that we have to pick each season's fruit in order to make wine, but unlike the fruit, the vine stays rooted in place, year after year. So in 2018 we began the work of building a different picture of this place, one that combines multiple years of Pinot Noir into a single wine. Thus was born Perpetua Rubrum, a multi-vintage blend (2018, 2019, and 2021) that will eventually contain 10, then 20, then 50 years of wine, expressing the enduring heart of Antiquum Farm.
