Production notes The canopy is meticulously managed from fruit set to harvest to ensure minimal MP and maximal airflow and sun exposure.  Fruit is hand-picked, destemmed and macerated for a 4 day cold soak prior to primary fermentation which lasted 15 days. Daily punch-downs in small vessels to maximize skin contact prior to pressing for optimal color extraction.  A secondary MLF was conducted upon introduction into barrels. Aging for 14 months in American oak barrels.
