Maloof - Red Blend "Wax on, Wax Soif" 2021
I smoke on the mic like “Smokin’ Joe” Frazier
The hell-raiser, raisin’ hell with the flavor.
Medium bodied red for your late summer blues. Earthy and smooth, full of blue fruit and white pepper. This is the sole red wine we make, and we still managed to throw 20% white fruit in it.
Co-fermented for 12 days on the skins, with sparing punchdowns before being pressed off. Primary fermentation finished in stainless steel and then moved into neutral french oak barrels.
The fruit was co-fermented with a small amount of whole cluster in there. Daily punchdowns, however pressed off the skins a little early, after about 12 days. From there, the fermentation finished in stainless steel, and then was moved to neutral french oak for 9 months after primary. Bottled without fining or filtration.
