TASTING NOTES Refined aromas of violet & cherry jam. Partial semi-carbonic maceration allows for a lively freshness and floral aromas. Light bodied with a moderate acidity and tart red fruit notes, but structured with minimal fine tannins. Serve slightly chilled for a great summer red. WINEGROWING Grown with a focus on sustainability. These grapes are farmed on nutrient rich soils, made up of a decomposed ancient sea bed. A properly managed, umbrella like canopy allows for just the right air flow and dappled sunlight onto the clusters to achieve maximum quality. The higher water holding capacity of these soils allow for fewer water applications throughout the season, and lends to the uniqueness of the wine. WINEMAKING Whole cluster carbonic maceration on 50% of the total lot combined with open top fermentation and punchdowns on the other portion. Aged briefly in neutral French oak barrels. Racked only once. Bottled early in February following the vintage. Minimal sulfites added at bottling.
