All fruit was hand harvested in late September to mid-October and processed quickly to retain cool temperatures and fruit freshness. Lightly crushed and fermented in a mix of stainless steel bins and barrel, time on skins averaged 16-18 days and with 50% going through fermentation spontaneously. Gently pressed, the wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels, all second fill for 20 months.
