Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The grapes are crushed into half ton macrobins and left with their skins for a full ten days of fermentation. Four times a day the solid cap of skins is punched down by hand to maximize extraction from skins while minimizing extraction from harsh seed tannins. Each lot was fermented separately, then pressed into American small oak barrels (30% new). The individual lots aged for 12 months before being blended for bottling.
