Production Notes
The grapes were harvested in the morning hours on August 20, 2018. The fruit came from our Estate vineyard block 1 and was skin soaked which allows the skins to touch the juice for 24 hours to extract more color and aromatics. The juice was then fermented and aged in one of our concrete egg tanks.
