What's in the bottle
Syrah ()
ABV: 13.0%
Harvest
Syrah from Venturi Vineyard, Mendocino ().
Press: After 8 days the wine was pressed to barrel where it finishes primary fermentation.
Winemaking
Fermentation: We destemmed 5% of the grapes at the bottom of the tank. The following 95% grapes left whole cluster (stems and all) over top. The wine was then blanketed with CO2 and held at cool temperatures for 8 days (70F). Our winemaker preformed 1 very gentle pump over per day.
Aging
It is aged in neutral barrels for 6 months where it finishes malolactic fermentations prior to bottling.
