The fruit is harvested in the morning when the fruit is cooler. The berries are destemmed from bunches but not crushed. Neutral cultured yeast is used to start ferment. The fermentation is short and at lower temperatures to retail fresh fruit flavors and minimize tannins extraction from seeds. Once the ferment is completed, the wine is drained from the skins and the free run juice and pressings are blended together. This is settled for 24 hours and then its racked off the gross lees and returned to stainless steel containers where it goes thru Malo. This occurs naturally and is not induced. The wine is not fined or filtered.

Bright ruby. An intensely floral nose features red berry preserves, rose, jasmine and candied licorice. Juicy and perfumed in the mouth, with a silky touch to the intense raspberry and floral pastille flavors. Youthfully fruity wine, with tangy acidity that needs a little time to harmonize with the primary fruit. The note of candied flowers carries through the long, sappy finish.
