Style & Statistics
The grapes were handpicked and a light whole-cluster pressing resulted in low yields but high-quality juice.
The wine was fermented in stainless at cool temperatures to retain the fresh fruit and was aged for 6 months in barrels prior to bottling.
Barrel aging took place in 7 French Oak barrels. Two new barrels were utilized for 30% of the blend.
