Viticulture

The vines sit at an altitude of 130 feet and are managed with an open canopy to provide good airflow and exposure to sunlight. Vines are 10-years-old on average, and are all single cordon spur pruned.

Soil

Alluvial (gravel & silty loam)

Vinification

All fruit is sorted with a state-of-the-art optical sorting machine and destemmed to closed fermenters. Cold soaking takes place before ferment and fermentation is approximately 10 days with regular pump overs to optimize extraction of color, flavor and tannin. Daily assessment of flavor and structure determines when pressing takes place. Each batch and variety are kept separate during barrel maturation for up to 12 months. The wine is blended, fined and filtered just prior to bottling.

Aging

12 months in oak barriques (30% new)
