Item Description

"We sorted clusters in the vineyard and then gently
destemmed following an evening in our cold room. We removed all
jack stems on the sorting table. Musts were cold soaked in open-top
fermenters for one to four days, then inoculated with cultured yeasts to
begin slow fermentation. Each tank was manually punched down one to
three times per day, with a total maceration time of fourteen to eigh-
teen days. Upon completion of primary fermentation and maceration,
all free run wine was transferred to tank for settling. We pressed at
extremely low pressure (0.08 bars) to avoid extracting bitterness from
the seeds. After settling overnight both free-run and press wines were
racked to barrels.
Character: Each year, our goal for Southing is to create the ideal
marriage of complexity and elegance. The seductive nose of the 2009
Southing exhibits fresh leather, rose water, black cherry, violets and
hint of macerated cherry. The fine tannins and minerality are enhanced
by our estate vineyards characteristic cool climate acidity."~Winery Notes
