Notes: The harvest of 2019 will be remembered for the abundance of precipitation that fell in September and early October. We were lucky to pick perfectly ripe grapes between rain showers. Fruit came from 3 7-year-old vines at Montinore Estate Vineyards and was allowed to macerate, on-skins, for 234 days in egg-shaped fermenters. After draining and pressing, the wine aged for two months in French oak barrels before bottling without fining or filtration. In the glass, you'll find aromas of fresh apricot, ginger and satsuma.
