The grapes were hand harvested at night in cool temperatures to keep the sugars intact and the fruit fresh. Instead of crushing, the pinot noir was gently destemmed keeping the whole berries undamaged. The fruit and juice were gravity fed into open topped fermenters and cold soaked for five to six days to extract color and red cherry aromas. Native yeast fermentation gives this wine an extra layer of complexity, adding earthy aromas and gentle tannins.
