Reviews and Ratings

Fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures between 25° and 28°C with high
color extraction at the beginning of the this process. This was followed by fermentation at a lower temperature so as to ensure a different extraction of the skin components. A long post maceration at low temperatures assured an adequate extraction for the ageing of the wine.
60% of the wine was aged in a combination of American oak barrels for 8 months.
The remaining 40% was aged exclusively in stainless steel vats until bottling.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
