Juicy, berry, fresh.
An estate field blend that was bursting with freshness upon harvest. Iwas whole bunch fermented in stainless for 2.5 weeks but was lacking structure, so Averill Creek used an classic method used in Valpolicella (you've heard of Ripasso) and added the Joue field blend to some leftover Pinot Noir marc (skins and stems) overnight, which had the structure they desired. There were no yeast, nutrients, enzymes, or sulphites added; the wine is also unfiltered and unfined.
Juicy is the most apt descriptor. Cherries, red forest berries, vanilla, purple flowers, cedar and white pepper aromas develop into a bouncy and quaffable palate with high-toned red and purple fruit and a spiced finish. A charming red that deserves a slight chill before serving--you won't regret it!
