Gentle winemaking techniques were used such as barrel fermentation at cool temperatures, sur lie aging in small French oak barrels and weekly batonage (stirring of the lees). To add complexity, a variety of yeasts were used in primary fermentation and the wine was encouraged to undergo malolactic fermentation as well. Soft but evident acids and a variety of spice and fruit nuances result. A gentle fining with natural ingredients add richness and depth while integrating the components of oak, fruit, spice, and acids. The initial impression is a fruit forward wine (peaches and pineapple) with underlying tones of butterscotch, coconut, and hazelnut in the mid-palate and banana dominating the extra long finish.
