2017 Sugarloaf Red Wine
Grown using the Gobelet method, an ancient vine training technique that requires no trellising and results in bushy, goblet-shaped growth. Common in the Rhone region of southern France.
All four varietals were destemmed and co-fermented in a small open top stainless steel fermenter. The cap was gently punched down by hand three times per day.
10 months in neutral French oak puncheons
Inspired by old-world methods of winemaking and winegrowing, this is a field blend of all four grape varietals which were harvested on the same day and then co-fermented to craft this Southern Rhone-style wine. Aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry, citrus zest, spring flowers, garrigue, and white pepper. Silky smooth tannins and vibrant acidity lead to a long, delicious finish. Enjoy!
