Notes & Pairings

This is a super limited field blend of Blaufränkisch, Portugieser, Welschriesling, Fetească Regală, a little Merlot and a few unidentified grapes. Everything was destemmed and then fermented in open vats for 2-3 days. Aged in 500L and 225L oak barrels, it was bottled unfiltered with zero additions. It looked like a Kadarka when I first tried it, but the aromatics from Fetească Regală, texture and overall feel is something all on its own. This is certainly in the chillable red category, but deserves more attention as it comes up to temperature.
