Winemaker Kris Curran Notes
Employing classical techniques, the grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed with the resulting juice transferred to tank. Following a day of cold-settling, the juice was inoculated and racked to small French oak barrels. Each block was vinified separately and kept isolated in the cellar for blending purposes. The wine was stirred weekly and completed both primary as well as malolactic fermentation while in cask. Aged for approximately 12 months, the wine was lightly filtered before being bottling in February 2009. Well-balanced, the wine exudes aromas of green apple, pear, grapefruit, tangerine, butterscotch and a mineral note of struck stone. Replete with crisp acidity, the wine is fruit driven and boasts a lush, creamy texture in t ...more... he mouth.
