The pick dates for this wine were August 31, September 8th and 22nd. To make this wine we employed carbonic maceration which is a perfect method for grapes that are picked earlier with higher acidity. After 10 days of carbonic maceration at about 55F, we warmed up the tanks and gave them a daily pump over for four days to get a bit more color and a cleaner ferment.

After this period we pressed the grapes lightly added 10ppm SO2 and fermented each lot separately in a warm tank. Once the wines were dry we stored them cool for a number of weeks and achieved good settling and clarity. Two days before bottling we racked the tank and added 9ppm SO2 to protect from any oxygen the wine picked up during bottling.
