Winemaking Notes

All fruit was picked by hand at first light in the morning when temperatures are at their coolest. Small batches of each varietal were brought into the winery individually, processed immediately into small tanks and held by a dry ice blanket for 2-4 days depending on the varietal. The Scion blend was held on skins during fermentation for nearly 20 days. After Malolactic Fermentation, the wine was put into barrels for 24 months and racked 3 times. Small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Merlot were added during the final racking.
