Winemaking

Grapes are handpicked and de-stemmed. Must is pumped to our temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, and then inoculated with a wine yeast selected for its hardiness and alcohol tolerance. Once the wine has extracted to the desired level of tannins, the grapes are pressed. Both free run and press juice combine to enhance the wine’s structure. The wine is pumped over 4 times daily to optimize bright fruit. Barrel aged in once used American oak from our Chardonnay program for 18 months.
