Fermentation
The berries were like skins around seeds with great concentration of flavour. Hand picked, crushed, destemmed and fermented in 5 ton open top fermenters with regular pump overs 3 times daily during peak fermentation to extract colour and tannin. Following on average of 15 days "on skin," the free fun was drained to tank and teh skins pressed with the pressings being combined in the same tank. After 24 hours, the wine was racked to oak barresl, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
Aging
17 months in 80% new French Taransaug hogsheads, 20% in 2 year old French Darnajou barrique.
