Whole Cluster Fermentation

As was the usual practice for most of wine making history, the grapes used in this wine were fermented along with their stems, forgoing the now common process of de-stemming red wine grapes before maceration.

Production Notes
The fermentation of whole clusters with unbroken berries not only influences the development of aromas and flavors in the wine, but also imparts uniquely structured tannins derived from the stems themselves. As a result, this wine has a well-defined structure, complexly textured tannins, and an element of freshness that suggests a wine worthy of the cellar.
