WINEMAKER NOTES: Following a nerve-racking late spring frost, mother nature gave Maine winemakers a reprieve with a hot, dry growing season that allowed the vines to catch up and produce beautifully ripe fruit. Harvested as the sun rose over the horizon on an early November morning, each cluster was gently clipped from the vine and delicately placed in bins to be loaded into our press where we kept the pressure low to avoid harsh phenolics. Closely monitoring sugar levels during fermentation, we chilled the tank to 33 F when the wine hit 10.1 degrees brix. Careful to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, we fermented and aged the wine in 100% stainless steel.
