A blend from the Block 9 (KD Selection), Block 19 (Dijon 96), Block 20 (Dijon 95), and Block 21 (Old Wente Selection). It was whole-cluster crushed and fermented entirely in stainless steel. The 2010 was not allowed to go through malolactic fermentation and remained in stainless steel until bottling with a screw-cap closure.
