A nose full of blackberry and blueberry. Gobs of red plum and boysenberry, and pomegranate on the super juicy palate. The acidity is really bright and zippy and in the finish there is nice mouth coating tannin that keeps the wine fresh on the palate.

A Nouveau is born! Nouveau is the name given to the first wine of the vintage. The style originated out of Beaujolais, just south of Burgundy where they make wines from Gamay Noir using the technique carbonic maceration. In carbonic maceration, open top tanks that have been inertized with carbon dioxide are filled with whole cluster grapes and then sealed for a number of days. Pioneering wine chemist and natural winemaker Jules Chauvet employed the technique in the mid 20st century to make light, fruity and delicious wines.

 

The blend is made up of two lots of old vine Valdiguié, also known as Napa Gamay and a tank where we co-fermented destemmed Petite Sirah and Zinfandel.
