Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) The grapes were handpicked and crushed into stainless steel fermenters where the must was cold soaked overnight and allowed to begin fermentation spontaneously. The mash was then inoculated with a variety of cultured yeasts. The wine fermented dry on the skins, was pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being blended and racked to barrel for maturation. A light fining and filtration was applied just before bottling. Fermentation temperature: 23° – 28° C Wood ageing: 18 months – 18 months – 44% new and 56 % 2nd fill oak barrels (225L French Oak)
