Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

Pneumatic press. Wines then moved to individually determined combination of new, second and third-year barrels. Never more than 25% new oak. Extensive bâtonnage of lees during period of malo-lactic to enhance texture and reduce use of SO2. Racked, fined and returned to barrel in Spring after harvest and bottled with minimal or no filtration in September.
