“Mise En Place” is a French culinary phrase meaning “everything in its place.” This name reflects the preparation and diligence exercised in thevineyards and winery.
Grape clusters were field-sorted, hand-harvested, hand-sorted at the winery. Fruit was de-stemmed and cold soaked for two days.
After 31-33 days on the skins, lots were gently pressed into barrels to complete ML.
Highest quality French Oak cooperages: Nadalié and Giraud.
The concept of “mise en place” comes to life in this wine where every aroma, every flavor, every texture is truly in its place. By using slow, gentle methods like hand harvesting and hand sorting, along with aging in French Oak barrels, we designed this wine to show restraint, a quality that translates into a taste experience that reveals rather than overpowers.
— Abigail Estrada, Winemaker
