WINEMAKING

The grapes were gently pressed off the skins in a zero-oxygen environment to preserve freshness and prevent premature oxidation. Once cold settled the wine was racked and fermented in stainless steel at a chilling 50 degrees using a combination of wild type and commercial yeasts for almost 6 weeks. A small portion of the wine was native fermented in neutral French oak barrels. Post fermentation the wine was stored in all neutral French oak barrels for 7 months where it underwent periodic “batonnage” which is a process of homogenizing the lees with the finished wine to enhance mouthfeel and create a sense of creaminess. The wine was blended to taste and bottled in August 2019.
