Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine is a crystal clear cranberry color with pretty pink bubbles. The aromas are full of bruleéd strawberries, lemon zest, and nutty roasted almonds. The palate explodes with ripe raspberry and orange blossom flavors. The finish is lively and clean and leaves you wanting more.
Production Notes
100% Syrah, created using the Méthode Champenoise, which is the traditional method of making Champagne and other sparkling wines.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were hand harvested and de-stemmed, then crushed. They were allowed skin contact for only 12 hours to get the beautiful pink color. The grapes were then pressed to a stainless steel tank, where they were fermented at very cold temperatures very slowly. After fermentation and settling, the wine was bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugar to induce secondary fermentation. This process took about 9 months. After this, the bottles were riddled to bring the lees and sediment to the neck of the bottle. The necks were then frozen and the lees were disgorged from the bottles. The bottles were then topped up and a “dosage” was added and the final corks and wire hoods were put into place.
Food Pairing Notes
This is our go-to food pairing wine and it will pair with everything. In addition to complementing spicy Thai dishes, some other ideas are curried butternut squash soup, pork tenderloin and of course all the deliciousness on the Thanksgiving table.
