2018 Cuvée A Midnight Saignée

Sold Out


Grapes were hand-picked and brought directly to the winery in 1/2 ton totes in perfect condition. They were meticulously hand sorted on a shaker table then destemmed into 2- ton open top, stainless steel fermenters. The must was cold-soaked for five days. On the 2nd day of the cold soak all Pinot noir fermenters received a saignee (bleeding off a small percentage of juice) in order to concentrate flavors (and control alcohol levels). This rosé wine is a blend of all of our pinot noir saignée lots representing multiple vineyards and AVAs. Each lot was racked to neutral French oak barrels and barrel fermented using multiple yeast cultures. It was fermented to dryness and allowed to remain on the lees until blending. Each barrel was evaluated and only the finest were selected.
