Winemaker Notes

0.6 tons of Pinot Noir fruit were hand-harvested on 09/22/15 and 9/23/15.  The fruit was cooled in the reefer for 2 days, removed, crushed, de-stemmed, and cold-soaked for 6 days.  The must was then fermented on the skins, using 3001 yeast, and was punched down 3 times per day.  It was pressed on 10/7/15, after 8 days of fermentation, with fermentation temperatures in the 72-86F range, peaking at 86F.  After 7 days of settling, the wine was racked to 1 older, neutral barrel and 1 4th-use French oak barrel.  No ML bacteria were added to the wine and it went through partial ML before  11/19/15.  The wine was racked from barrels and topping tank on 06/2/16, after 8 months in barrel.  All of the wine was included in the final blend.  The wine was sterile-filtered at bottling on 08/16/16.
