AGING

Matured for 12 months in French oak,15% of which was new, and the remainder in one to six year old puncheons and hogsheads.

FERMENTATION

The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in three, five, seven and 10 ton open top vessels. Regular pump overs three times daily were performed during the peak of fermentation to extract flavors, color and tannins. At pressing, the free run and pressings were combined to tank, then racked to barrel for oak maturation where malolactic fermentation occurred. All batches were kept separate and blended just prior to bottling.
