in the vineyard : Each individual cultivar was treated separately to emphasize their unique characteristics. All varietals underwent alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks inoculated with specific yeast strains to reflect the terroir and the grapes’ natural fruitiness. Pumped and punched down for greater extraction and concentration, the wines then went through malolactic fermentation in flex tanks with oak staves – all top quality French and American oak. After maturation, the components were carefully blended and bottled to create an easy drinking, accessible red table wine.
