DescriptionPart of Santa Rita's Icon Range, Bougainville Petit Sirah is named after the Bougainvillea plants found at the winery. Bougainville is round, sweet and complex with lively aromas of black fruits in balance with sweet spices as well as earth and smoke. Soft, ripe tannins with bright and juicy acidity, and a smooth, long finish.
VinificationThe wine was vinified by traditional methods in stainless steel tanks with cold maceration prior to fermentation. After a post-fermentation maceration, the wine is aged for 18 months in new, medium-toast French oak. The wine rests in stainless steel tans for two months before bottling.
