Tasting Notes
Deep ruby in color, our Feldspar V is another of our premium Bordeaux-style blends and, this time around, is made mostly from our Merlot wines. Feldspar V has a very expressive nose and palate that showcases ripe plum, red, and dark fruits and berries along with fig, chocolate, sweet wood, toasty vanilla, tobacco, and floral notes. This vintage shows juicy acidity with a lingering finish of peppery spice and hints of crushed rocks.
Vineyard Notes
After the red wine grapes are picked, destemmed, and crushed, the berries, juice, pulp and seeds all go into a stainless steel fermentation tank. Once filled, the juice will rest in the tanks for a few days to extract as much color and flavor as possible. The wine will then ferment at a warm 80-90 degrees with frequent "pump overs" to provide for even extraction. After fermentation is complete, the juice is drained out of the tanks and put into oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. Once this free-run juice is out of the tank we will press the remaining pommace to extract additional wine. This "pressed wine," is barreled separately for malolactic fermentation and aging. Generally, this pressed wine is more tannic and needs longer time in barrel to soften the tannins. Feldspar uses some of the more tannic, pressed wine in its blend.
