Winery Favorite

The clusters were completely destemmed into 1/2 ton size, open-top, oak fermentors. A brief cold-soak period, before alcoholic fermentation was done to build depth. Regular manual pigeage was done for cap extraction. After a pressing to liberate the juice, the wine finished to dryness and settled clear. Malo-lactic fermentation and aging were hosted in select, 300L French oak hogsheads for 10 months plus neutral, traditional barrique. Varietal character shines through out.
