The grapes were hand harvested and brought into the winery and gently foot stomped in bin, then de-stemming, crushing, and gentle full extraction pressing. 60% was then fermented in new oak (60% French & 40% convention toasted American) with the remainder in stainless steel. Aged 8 months sur lie experiencing bi-weekly bâtonnage.
