Winemaking

This Pinot Noir was sourced from well-established vines that are more than ten years old. After hand-harvesting during the night in mid-September to preserve freshness and fruit integrity, the grapes were brought to our winery where they were hand sorted, gently de-stemmed, and not crushed. After, they were placed in small, temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and allowed a five-day cold soak to extract color and the phenolic compounds that contribute to the finished wine’s aromatics and flavor. A portion of the wine was fermented in new French oak puncheon barrels and the balance in stainless. After a ten-day fermentation, the wine was placed in 100% new specially selected French oak barrels in a 9-month aging program designed to imbue the wine with sweet aromas and smooth texture with slow oak integration. The wine was racked once just prior to bottling.
