Grapes - St. Laurent (Austrian Grape) and Pinot Noir.
Hand-picked then gently de-stemmed
Wine-making - Primary Fermentation taking place on the skins.
Secondary Malolactic Fermentation (MLF) - *is a process where tart malic acid in wine is eaten by an added bacteria (Oenoccocus Oeni) and is converted to softer, creamier lactic acid (the same acid found in milk). The process reduces acidity in wine and also releases some carbon dioxide in the meantime.
Pairing - Duck, Stewed Meats, Game, Mushroom, Cured Meats - Richly flavoured foods
Tasting Note - Bright, youthful cherry in colour. Delicate aromatics of wild strawberry, thyme and red flowers. Medium bodied and juicy with cranberry, red cherry and sweet herbs. There is enough tannin and acidity to stand up to protein and fat but enough fruit to easily enjoy on its own.
**Cherries dressed in leather with a faux fur lining. A solid wine to tuck in to when the weather’s cold and you’re feeling comforting rich food or braised or stewed meats. Get cozy and stay awhile.
