The grapes come from old vines in a vineyard of 3.95 acres. They have a Southeastern facing, planted in the traditional French Guyot style. The grapes are harvested and gently pressed, with fermentation taking place under controlled temperatures in stainless-steel vats (100% malolactic). The wine stays on its lees for a short time and the juice is racked several times before bottling. Thirty percent of the wine spends nine months in French new oak barrels.
Best served with appetizers, grilled fish, seared scallops, or gorgonzola cheese.
