Product Description

Fruit sourced from the Coal River valley. It is 100% barrel fermented with natural yeast in seasoned oak. It was held on lees for two months’ post ferment. The finished wine has ripe acidity and is balanced by 5 grams of residual sugar.  A limited volume of only 1092 bottles were produced without fining.

Tasting Notes

The residual sugar allows the palate to begin with fruit and transition to a dry finish. The warmer natural barrel ferment and time on lees has added significant weight and texture.Time in the cellar will see this wine flesh out even further. Drink it now, wait a year, wait a few more, there’s no bad time to crack this open.
