A lovely cab/sauv, especially at this price!

HARVEST & VINTAGE NOTES WINEMAKING PROCESS: The different vineyards and parcels are hand-picked in the early morning. The bunches are crushed and destemmed and pumped to open top fermenters. The mash is cold settled for 2-4 days and then inoculated with yeast. Daily pump overs, punch downs and rack and returns are done and the skins are pressed when dry.  Malolactic is done in tank. After Malolactic the wine is racked to 225 L French oak barrels for maturation. The wine is racked as necessary and spent 16 months in barrel. Before bottling the blend was made up and rough filtration was done.
