Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of balsam, ripe plum, and paprika. Flavors of black cherry, baking spice, and vanilla.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000' and 1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices.
Production Notes
The Chambourcin was divided into 1 ton lots and fermented using three different yeast. Punchdowns every 4 hours for the first 48 hours of fermentation, then twice daily until the cap has fallen. Aged for 7 months in a blend of new and used Hungarian and American oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2015 was a good vintage in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the growing season. The fruit came in with good phenolics, and balanced chemistry. Whites were picked about 2 weeks earlier than previous years, but with optimal ripeness. Reds came in with excellent skin integrity and concentration.
