2008 Single Vineyard Barbera

The grapes used to produce our 2008 Shannon Ridge Single Vineyard Barbera were allowed to hang on the vines long enough for the acid to come into balance. We did a long cold soak on the skins to improve color and enhance the fresh fruit. The fruit was pressed at dryness and put through Malo-lactic fermentation. Aged in French and American oak to enhance the creamy vanilla mouthfeel.
