2015 Malbec

The 2015 Malbec was gently destemmed and then pumped to tank.  It was fermented on the skins for 14 days and then drained at the completion of alcoholic fermentation.  After draining it was racked to 65% new barrels, 70% of which are Hungarian Oak and 30% French Oak, to barrels for ageing.  It was then racked quarterly for the first year before being racked to tank in May for bottling.
