Wine Making Style:

  • the fruit spent 24 hours in a cold room to drop the fruit temperature and avoid dry ice
  • the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed into small 1 ½ ton open top fermenters
  • cold soaked for a feew days until the wild yeast kicked in
  • after 12-16 days, with 2 daily punch downs, we drained the free-run (~75%) and gave the remainder a gentle press
  • the juice is racked and the indivual batches are put into oak barrels to allowed the second fermentation (converts malolatic acid to lactic acid) utilizing the natural wild malolactic bacteria to begin
  • the wine was racked twice during the barrel aging
  • the wine is unfined and unfiltered
