The counterweight trébuchet was an engineering marvel capable of hurling boulders over 300m! Designed to level castles, the trébuchet was the first siege engine to employ a fulcrum to launch a projectile. It surpassed the catapult in power, accuracy, and design. The trébuchet “bad neighbor” was known to induce landslides in order to collapse city walls. The design is said to have influenced clockwork & theoretical physics. Consequently, the trébuchet persisted into the 15th century toppling castles alongside the howitzer cannon.
Winemaking notes: 100% free run wine from hand picked pinot noir. Unfined and polished filtered with natural and added sulfites for freshness, no additional additives, preservatives, animal products, or residual sugar. Aged 1.5 years on the lees with American Medium+ toasted oak.
Tasting notes: Trébuchet is the delicate counterpart to our Howitzer pinot noir. These two wines, separated after birth, showcase how a simple deviation in the process can produce two distinct wines from a single fermentation. The Trébuchet is entirely free run wine meaning that it does not go through our grape press. Howitzer on the other hand is all of the wine that comes off the press which yields a heavier tannin profile and mouthfeel. Trébuchet on the other hand is a delicate, fruit forward, and more nuanced version of pinot noir that is sure to delight the senses.
