Together these grapes result in a complexity that not one could have achieved on its own. Much like how the horizon is created by the road and the sky – and the pursuit of that which is in our view yet just out of reach. The fruit was whole cluster pressed and each variety was separately cold fermented in stainless steel in order to perserve the maximum fresh fruitiness and delicacy. We utilized special yeasts that enhanced the fruit structure and aroma profile. The new wine was stored cold in an effort to avoid malolactic fermentation. After six months aging and many critical blending trials the blend was selected, allowed to marry in varietal complexity, and then bottled. (hide)
