WINEMAKER NOTESUpon hand harvesting, our Malbec was carefully destemmed and sent to tank for a whole berry fermentation. The fermentation temperature never rose above 82° F, which allowed for a warm extraction from the skins. After fermentation and pressing, the wine went to 45% new French oak, 55% neutral French oak barrels, aging for 20 months. The final blend is 80% Malbec, 18% Cabernet, and 2% Merlot. This wine was unfined and unfiltered.
