A sweet red wine with the aroma of strawberry rhubarb pie and flavors of plum, pomegranate, and red apple.
Made from Chambourcin, Corot Noir, and Noiret grapes. This wine was made like a rosé but has much more residual sugar and a deeper color.
The grapes for this wine were destemmed and crushed and "cold soaked" for several hours to allow the skins to darken the color of the juice prior to fermentation. The deeply colored must was then pressed into light red juice and fermented at 56°F in stainless steel tanks. This wine has 2.7% residual sugar to balance its juicy red fruit flavors.
Food Pairing Notes
Summertime/picnic wine goes well with fruit salad picnic foods and spicy dishes.
