Harvesting the grapes at precisely the right time is one of the more crucial elements in developing a good Merlot. These grapes have a tendency to over ripen very quickly, which can greatly impact the acidity level, aging process and fruit body. We regularly test the grapes to ensure they are picked at the perfect time and then briefly age them in oak to add some complexity to the already broad flavor.
