Tim wrote:The Riddle fruit was picked at night and arrived early and cold to the winery. We included a small amount of whole cluster (approximately 15%) in the 115 fermentation. These clusters were hand-sorted, then layered on the bottom of the small 1.5 ton tank. We hand-sorted and destemmed the remaining 115 on top of the whole bunches. The Pommard fruit was 100% destemmed. The small tanks were placed in a cold room for 5 days and punched down by hand once per day. Native fermentation was started by warming up the tanks, during which time the ferments are punched down 2-3 times daily at ambient temperature. Based on taste, the wine was pressed and barreled into 20% new Remond Allier French oak and left on its lees until just prior to bottling. Time in barrel was 11 months. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
