Secondly, we source from Yountmill Vineyards, a CCOF certified ranch on the valley floor in Yountville.
Hand harvested in the cool morning hours, the fruit is whole cluster pressed into tank. The juice is cold settled for 48 hours before initiating fermentation with cultured yeast. Just after peak fermentation, the wine was put into both stainless steel and neutral French oak barrels. The wine is aged in these barrels with no malolactic fermentation.
Aged 84% Stainless Steel and 16% neutral French oak barrels for four months.
