More info

The grapes for this wine are from a small block in Elgin. It is a beautiful site on well-drained, granite soils. The vineyard was planted to a mix of Dijon clones. All of the grapes were hand picked into small lug boxes and then cooled overnight before being carefully sorted and then crushed into small open tanks. The must was then cold-soaked for two days. About 5% of the wine was whole bunch fermented. Hand punch-downs were done throughout. After primary fermentation, the wine was basket-pressed and then racked to barrel for the malo-lactic fermentation and subsequent barrel maturation. Only French oak was used, primarily 2nd and 3rd and 4th-fill and a touch (about 10%) of new oak. After 10 months maturation, the wine was bottled with a light filtration.
