Marechal Foch, DeChaunac and Rougeon are used in roughly equal proportions to create Red Expression. The fruit is processed via Thermal Vinification to extract color from the skins without extracting astringent tannin from the seeds. The juice is then settled 24 hours and racked to ferment in stainless steel tanks. The must is fermented cool like a white wine to retain bright fruit aromas and flavors. ML completes in tank and the finished wines are racked and naturally cold stabilized before assembling the final blend.
