Item Description

The grapes were harvested and sorted by hand prior to destemming and partial crushing. The fruit was fed by gravity into 3.5-ton open-top fermenters on skins for 14-28 days, with a quarter of the blend fermented using a submerged cap. This allowed for a more gentle extraction and created softer, more elegant tannins. Following primary fermentation, the wine was racked into French and American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation to round out the mouthfeel. After overseeing the wine as individual barrel lots through the winter, we assembled the majority of the blend in April to allow the flavors to integrate. We then aged the wine in 40% new French oak barrels, 30% used French oak and 30% new American oak for a total of 16 months.
