TINGA PIA
We destemmed this fruit into one-ton fermenters in Mid-September. 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 the wine into 5-year neutral French oak barrels. We made the final vineyard blend 18 months later.
It was racked from barrels back to barrels three times before bottling over the total aging period of 25 months.
