Dropped by gravity straight to the press, the juice is pumped directly into stainless steel vessels where the wine ferments without any juice to skin contact, thereby maintaining the nice salmon color.
Vintage: A warm summer led to an early start to harvest, followed by a stretch of lower than average temperatures in late September that slowed ripening so grapes hung longer without sugars skyrocketing, providing balance, more flavor development and concentration. A long but successful harvest!.
