Hand-picked in mid-April, a late-year it was, the fruit was crushed and destemmed to press, and only the free-run juice was collected and cold settled for this wine. Juice pH was 3.14, the year was cold, and acids were high. Settled juice was warmed and inoculated, and once fermentation started was transferred to new French oak hogs’ heads. A malo culture was started and added to barrels during fermentation at the end of primary fermentation. By the end of malolactic fermentation, wine pH was up to 3.40, barrels topped and kept on minimal Sulphur until October, stirred monthly.
