The fruit used to produce Lady In Red 10th Edition was grown at several outstanding locations around the Yakima Valley and Columbia Valley, including our own Kestrel View Estate Vineyard. Grapes from the chosen sites produce wines brimming with ripe black and red fruit flavors, coupled with generous full mouth feel.
The fruit which composes Lady In Red 10th Edition was carefully picked at it height of maturity, then de-stemmed and crushed leaving 15% whole berries. It was fermented at 85°F, in small batches, for 7 to 10 days, then gently pressed so as not to extract any harsh tannins. Fifty percent was then aged in small oak barrels until bottling.

The juice underwent a cool slow fermentation using Côte de Blanc yeast. The combination of these factors helped to preserve the fine fruit and floral qualities of the varieties. The fermentation was stopped at 0.8% Residual Sugar. The resulting wine is a marriage of spice and floral elements. Read the full wine description »
