Winemaker Notes

Hand picked, hand sorted and 100% whole cluster ferment. For the first week I only did pump overs and after that mostly foot stomping to release more sugar and color. Pressed to neutral French oak and aged for 18 months. The clusters and berries were very and concentrated. I choose to pick earlier to retain acid and build structure in this wine. This wine will age well! Crazy dark color comes from the semi-carbonic fermentation. This wine is fresh, broody and delicious, a great food wine
