2015 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13.5% ALC/VOL

Availability: Sold out



Aromas are a complex of cherry syrup, fruitcake, cedar and spice. Robust tannins reassure that this is a generously-bodied wine built for cellaring. Flavours bring thoughts of cooked dark fruit, cocoa and strawberry.

Picked at the Stouck family Vineyard on October 23rd as grape sugars averaged 23.7° Brix. After primary and malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was aged entirely in American oak. Initially the wine was divided, 40% to age in new American oak barrels and the remainder in older vessels. After ten months, all the wine was racked to age a further seven months in older barrels.

At the time of bottling, alcohol measured 13.5%, residual sugar 0 grams per litre, titratable acidity 6.7 grams per litre and pH 3.44. Vegan friendly.

Quantity bottled was 124 cases. Enjoy now to 2024.

Food Companions: Serve ear 14° C with roast chicken or turkey, mushrooms and pasta with meatballs or sausage and tomato-based sauces.

Vegan friendly.
