WINEMAKING

The Fruit

The fruit is hand-picked at night, then meticulously hand-sorted

The Juice

Berries are then destemmed and gravity fed into small open-top fermentors. After a three-day cold soak, a long, cool fermentation is initiated using native yeasts. Gentle pumpovers are utilized to optimize extraction

The Wine

 The wine is racked to French oak barrels for 16-18 months with minimal racking
