About The Harvest
The grapes were picked at 25° balling.
In The Cellar
The grapes were destemmed but not crushed to preserve the fruit. The grapes were fermented for 3 weeks on the skins before being pressed and laid to rest in French oak barrels - 20% new and the balance went into 2nd and 3rd fill. Here the malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was lightly fined and filtered before being bottled.
