2015 New World Reserve- Gold Medal Winner

Terroir:

Our vines are sheltered in the foothills of Carter’s mountain in the Blue Ridge, Virginia. The red varieties were planted on the southern exposure slopes on our vineyards highest elevations allowing for maximum sun exposure and ripeness of fruit.

Winemaking Notes:

The New World Reserve was hand-harvested and sorted then gravity fed to tank where it undergoes a cold maceration for 4-5 days. The grapes are then fermented entirely in stainless tanks with manual punchdowns. After alcoholic fermentation, an extended post maceration allows for additional body and structure. Malolactic fermentation in barrel softens the wine by removing malic acid. Only free run wines are used in New World Reserve and are aged in 50% new and 50% 1 year old French oak barrels for 18 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes:

This signature red showcases our best terroir in this full-bodied Bordeaux-style blend. It is complex and round, with silky tannins, and has developed flavors of toasted oak, currant, and black cherry. This wine is powerful yet elegant and pairs well with steak, lamb, and hard, salty cheeses such as gruyere.
