Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked at optimum maturity and were destemmed gently into our small fermenters. The cap was plunged 2-4 times a day during the fermentation on skin. Once the wine was near sugar dryness it was pressed in our traditional basket press and moved to Frech oak, where it aged for 15 months.
