(2012 Vintage) 100% of the grapes are hand-harvested and immediately transported to the winery. Whole clusters of berries go through a pneumatic press to help facilitate separation from the skins. The juice is then cooled to 46°F and is left to rest for 24 to 48 hours. The juice is racked and separated from the lees. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels at a temperature of 64°F-68°F and partial malolactic fermentation is performed to achieve natural and balanced acidity. The wine spends some time aging on the lees before it is bottled.
