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 (40% new) for 16 months with minimal racking.
