TINGA PIE
We destemmed this fruit into one-ton fermenters in beginning of October. We then inoculated with our proprietary concoction  of cultivated yeast, punched down 2 times per day, and fermented the wine to approximately 5 brix. Then it was delestaged and eventually pressed to tank 6 days later. We let this settle for 3 days, inoculated for malolactic fermentation and then racked from barrels back to barrels three times before bottling over the total aging period of 19 months in French Oak barrels.
