Silverthorn Wines Big Dog IV Méthode Cap Classique 2013

Made in the traditional Cap Classique method, both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes are whole bunch harvested and pressed. The Chardonnay portion is barrel fermented and aged in old French oak barrels to enhance the creaminess and complexity, while the Pinot Noir is cold fermented in stainless steel in order to accentuate the bright berry characters. After blending, the wine is bottle fermented and aged on the lees for 51 months. Post disgorging, the wine is aged on the cork for nine months.
