Wine Making

Grapes are whole cluster pressed to gently release the virgin and high quality juice. The juice is then fermented in stainless steel tank to continue the delicate preservation of fruit. The wine is then aged in new French and American barrels for 10 months. Six different types of barrels were used for this Chardonnay. The wine is enjoyable now and will continue to improve with careful cellaring for 3 to 5 years.
