2009 Single Vineyard Barbera

 

The grapes used to produce our 2009 Shannon Ridge Single Vineyard Barbera were picked from our High Valley Vineyards in Lake County. They 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 mouth feel.
