Production Notes:

The 2011 Viluko Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was made from a selection of 5 and 6 year old vines yielding less than two tons per acre. The fruit was hand harvested on two days in October, and was selected from 6 vineyard blocks. After hand sorting of clusters at the winery, the fruit was destemmed and allowed to soak on the skins for 4 days cold prior to a wild fermentation. The fermentation was pumped over twice daily, and allowed to macerate on the skins for an average of 58 days from crush to press. The wine was pressed into French oak barrels, 50% new, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for a total of 18 months before it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
