Indian Peak’s style of wine making is considered a low input method. Indian Peak's soil, water and climate are generally a fixed asset. Then we add our style of pruning, trellising and our canopy management to create the complex aromas and flavors that we enjoy in our wines. We ferment our wines to dry and barrel age the wine on the average of 21 months. We typically use 35% new French or Hungarian Oak, 15% new American Oak and 50% neutral barrels. With this barreling technique, we find the wine softens with a great deal of complexities. We never want the oak to dominate the palate.
