Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Following hand-harvesting, the grapes for our Malbec were cold soaked for up to four days prior to fermentation to maximize the extraction of their deep violet color. Fermentation occurred in upright tanks for one week at a maximum temperature of 85°F. The juice remained in contact with the skins for up to three weeks to foster optimal flavor development. After primary fermentation, this wine underwent malolactic fermentation to create a smooth, round mouthfeel. Seven months of oak influence imparted subtle brown spice notes
