Wine Maker Notes
Grapes are gently destemmed and then undergo cold maceration for 3 days. The must is fermented at low temperatures for a slow gradual fermentation. The juice undergoes extensive cap management during the first 5 days of cold maceration and fermentation to avoid the extraction of any dry, astringent seed tannins. Fermentation is finished with soft gentle pumping overs for another 6 days.
