Cuvée is a French wine term derived from cuve, meaning vat or tank. The term cuvée is used with several different meanings, more or less based on the concept of a tank of wine put to some purpose: On wine labels to denote wine of a specific blend or batch.
Each lot for the V Cuvée blend were hand-sorted then de-stemmed and cold-soaked for 3 to 5 days. Fermented in open-top fermentors and gently punch down by hand twice a day. The wine was then pressed off skins then racked to French barrels to age. After aging, each lot and barrel was specially selected to create our Bordeaux blend. The selected barrels were then blended together and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
