2007 was a year with small yields due to hail in the vineyards at the start of vegetative growth. Nevertheless, grapes were harvested in September with excellent maturity. All of the fruit for this wine comes from estate grown vines and gravity drives all movements of must/wine to minimize hard tannins. Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed but not crushed, macerated for 10 days in temperature controlled tanks followed by aging in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels for 6 months. Bottled without filtration after a gentle egg-white fining.
