2018 Racine de Ciel is made with 100% Cabernet Franc from our Home Farm Vineyard in Creek Shores appellation. The fruit was harvested on October 21st and 30th, 2018 and processed as 100% destemmed fruit. Fermentation by indigenous yeast proceeded steadily and completed by November 11th. The wine was aged in one old foudre and a combination of old demi-muids and barrels without any racking for a total of 18 months. 2018 Racine de Ciel was bottled unfiltered and un-fined on May 5th, 2020.
