This inviting summer wine is refreshing with notes of bright red raspberry, watermelon, and cotton candy. It has a fresh and juicy palate with a lingering fruit finish. This wine is made with grapes exclusively from our estate vineyard, predominantly Pinot Noir, with a small fraction of Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes from our young Red Rock Vineyard.
The grapes were destemmed and crushed to allow for skin contact time of 48 hours. This process allowed for the colour from the skin to integrate into the juice. After the perfect colour was achieved, the grapes were lightly pressed, settled, and the clean juice racked from the solids. Inoculated with a select strain of yeast accompanied by cold fermentation produced an exotic fruit aroma with a fruit-forward palate.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this great summer refresher on its own or with chicken salad, spinach and feta quiche, salmon, or BBQ chicken skewers.
