WINEMAKING

The Fruit

Hand-picked at night, then meticulously hand-sorted and destemmed

The Juice

Berries were gravity fed into small open-top fermenters. After a three-day soak, a long, cool fermentation was initiated using native yeasts. Gentle pumpovers were utilitzed to optimize extraction. 

The Wine

Following fermentation, the wine was racked to French oak barrels for 16 months with minimal racking.
