[Winemaking - Edit the Section Bellow]

WINEMAKING

The Fruit

Meticulously hand sorted and destemmed

The Juice

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

Aged 16 months in 60 percent new French oak barrels


[Vineyard Source - Edit the Section Bellow]

VINEYARD SOURCE

Morrito Hill in the Edna Valley appellation

Cool Climate

Long growing season for exceptional hangtime

Calcareous, clay-rich soil to produce fruit with exceptional intensity and complex flavor
