From the producer: ""The North Slope begins four feet from the end of the South slope and continues to slope to the North. It is 100% French clone 115. The proximity to the South slope does not influence these flavors, as clone 115 exhibits the most fruit-driven flavors and appears more 'New World' than French.
100% destemmed into open-top fermentors. 5 day cold soak with 3 times daily punchdowns. Fermentation lasts an additional 10–12 days, with 2 times daily punchdowns. Once dry, pressed into 25% new and 75% one-year-old François Frères barrels. The wine is aged in barrel for 12 months and settled in tank for 2 months."
