Don Miguel Vineyard Vineyard
The grapes were harvested August 31 to September 26, 2005. Each clone and parcel picked was vinified separately in small stainless steel tanks, after minimal crushing, with no whole clusters. After â€œpunching downâ€ the berries for gentle extraction of color and tannin during the fermentation, the wine was aged in premium French oak barrels, 35% new, from various coopers (Remond, Rousseau, Seguin Moreau, Marsannay, and Marchive) and forests ( Bertranges and others from Central France). It was bottled, unfined and unfiltered, in August 2006.
