Sequana Winemaker, James MacPhail has complete control over the creation of Sequana wines. Grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted, then cold-soaked prior to fermentation to maximize flavor and color extraction
In small open-topped tanks, each block was fermented separately, using primarily native yeasts. Other lots were fermented with yeasts unique to each individual lot.
Hand punch-downs extracted and elevated the Pinot Noir flavors and the wine was aged sur lie in French oak barrels for 11 months.
Inviting aromas of dark rose and lavender complement the wines plush, round texture. Full flavors of warm spice, cranberry and cherry last through the long, fruit-filled finish.
