This richly coloured wine offers opulent notes of dark berried fruit and blueberry, with nuances of black pepper, fine cocoa and vanilla. Showing lovely balance, the ripe fruit is enveloped in elegant tannins through to a lingering finish.
The winemaking philosophy at Oak Ridge honours the importance of finding balance between the land and the makers, beginning first with growing quality grapes.
Maggio has become part of the Lodi Rules initiative, which guides sustainable farming practices in California.
The wine is made from Petite Sirah 76%, Zinfandel 13%, Rubired 10%, and 1% from other varieties.
Each variety was vinified separately to bring out the potential of each lot. The Petite Sirah (a synonym for Durif) grapes underwent a pre-fermentation cold soak for 48 hours.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with a specially selected yeast.
The wine was pressed and racked off its lees before undergoing malolactic conversion. The wine was matured with oak influence for 10 months adding complexity to the resulting blend.
