The inclusion of dried stems adds complexity and brings out the dark spice notes found in the wine. At the time of fruit processing, the berries are removed from the stems which are collected and dried in the sun. After the stems are completely dry, a portion is added back into the fermentation. In addition, tannins give this wine a rich structure and weight, without being overbearing, and a lingering, berry-centric finish.
Please note: This vintage was bottled prior to our recent rebranding and features an older label. See second image on left for a view of what you'll receive.
