    PRODUCTION DETAILS:

     The grapes for our 2010 Malbec were hand harvested and destemmed. The must was chilled to 50 degrees Farenheit for a 48 hour cold soak. The must was then heated and inoculated with BM45 Yeast and the fermentation ensued at 94 degrees Farenheit. When primary fermentation was finished the wine macerated on the skins for 3 weeks helping to develop rich tannin structure. The wine was then pressed off the skins and allowed to age for 19 months and racked a total of 7 times. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
