Winemaker Hand 

Grapes were harvested from select parcels between September 26 and October 4, 2018. The grapes were destemmed and cold-soaked for 6-8 days prior to inoculation with selected yeast strains. The grapes fermented for approximately three weeks with daily punch downs before being transferred to French oak barrels.
