Three clones of Pinot Noir (113, 114, 943) were harvested around 24.5 brix and 100% destemmed, whole berry, to bins and a concrete tank and began 4 days of cold soak. Once fermentation began they were given twice per day pumpovers or punchdowns until dryness. After 15 days of maceration, the bins and concrete tank were gravity drained and basket pressed straight to barrel for elevage.
