The grapes are hand-harvested in the cool morning hours to ensure they arrive at the winery in pristine condition. The individual vineyard lost are fermented separately at cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and fruit intensity. A few selected lots (~10%) are aged in French Oak barrels to add depth, complexity, and spiciness to the final blend. This wine is aged on yeast almost 4 years, contributing a rich creamy finish.Download Fact Sheet
