Vintage & Viticulture
2015 came in with some unusually and at times brutally cold weather. By April/May the weather normalized and June gave us plenty of rain. The growing season gave us hope with sunny warm weather which ran into harvest time. This allowed us to get good maturation of fruit and the silver lining of the cold winter, less fruit, which meant higher quality.
The juice underwent fermentation on its skins for 14 days, using selected yeast. This wine underwent complete malolactic fermentation and was aged in older oak for 6 months.
A medium body food friendly wine with layers of red and black berry fruit. On the palate, raspberries, cherries, sweet black berry fruit and touch of cassis with subtle spice notes.
Rare red meat, roast beef, veal tenderloin.
