$15.99 – Sold Out
Region: Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Style: Juicy, yet dry. Light-Medium bodied, un-oaked.
Nose/Taste: Lightly spicy up front, with a juicy mid-palate with delectable acidity. Notes of fresh blackberries & blueberries with soft tannins. I found this to be absolutely delicious! Great with a light chill, so it will be my summer red go-to.
Pairings: Spring & Summertime. BBQ, tacos, pizza, burgers, cheese & charcuterie
From the Winery: "Picked in early April the fruit was then destemmed and only lightly crushed to allow the skins to slowly breakdown during the fermentation. The fruit was then cold macerated for 3 days on skins before slowly warming the 3 fermenters and allowing a wild fermentation to kick in. Fermentation lasted 13 days before the wine was then macerated on skins again for an additional 15 days and which also allowed for full malolactic fermentation to take place on skins. The wine was then pressed to tank and settled and again racked off its heavy sediment in early June. In late June the wine was evaluated and the decision was made to release this wine for the spring as a ‘Nouveau’ Wine."
