CHELSEA CELLARS 2012 MERLOT
Our 2012 Chelsea Cellars Merlot is made from grapes grown to our specifications by Sagemoor Vineyards, one of the premium growers in the Columbia Valley of Washington State. The hand-harvested fruit is immediately flash chilled insuring the finest quality grapes on arrival at our crush pad 72 hours after picking.
Crushed to open top stainless steel fermenters, followed by a 24-hour “cold soak” for improved color and tannin extraction.
Inoculation is done with a red Bordeaux yeast and fermentation on the skin takes place for the next 10 days.
Following the skin maceration, the young wine is pressed to a tank and allowed to settle for up to 72 hours, after which time it is racked to small French oak barrels.
ter which time it is racked to small French oak barrels · The wine is aged for 24 months in oak barrels to further enhance fruit components and tannin structure.
Beautifully proportioned fruit with consistent plum and black currant notes balanced with bold but well integrated tannins best describes our Chelsea Cellars Merlot.
