Producer: Catena

The Catena wines are a blend of single varietal lots from the Catena family’s vineyards. Each vineyard is divided into lots that are harvested separately, and specially prepared to be part of the final blend of each Catena wine.

The grapes are loaded into fermentation bins and oak barrels. Maceration and fermentation lasts for 10-35 days. Wild yeast strains are used during alcohol fermentation, and both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation are carried out in barrels. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels (70% new) for 18 months before bottling.
