Winemaking Thoughts

Typically picked at high brix which requires blending with a lower brix selection or the addition of acidulated water in order to keep the alcohol level below 15% ABV. Blends beautifully with Syrah.

Notes on the 2017 Vintage:

Juice Panel: Brix 26.6, 3.85 pH, TA 3.1 g/l, Malic Acid 0.6 g/l, YAN 223

  • Use Lalvin GRE = EnofermCSM yeast.
  • Add a medium portion of yeast food, 0.7 liters of water and 40 gr. of Tartaric acid. Follow safe protocol: fast ferment, 4.5 days on skins, ferment 75° f. Complete malolactic fermentation.
