The Ripasso Gift

$44.68

 

For the red and white wine lover this Enchanted 2016 & Conspiracy 2016 will be delivered tucked inside an elegant Foreign Affair Winery two bottle box.

Wines made in the ripasso style mean the juice was re-passed and aged on the skins and lees of the grapes, giving the wine more body and depth of flavours.

Enchanted 2016
A delicious and refreshing wine leading with gooseberry, citrus blossom, passion fruit and jasmine, a crisp acidity leading to a long complex finish.

A perfect blend of 45% Riesling, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay made in the ripasso style. The Riesling was repassed and aged on the skins and lees of our appassimento Sauvignon Blanc.

Conspiracy 2016
90 Points
– “This punches way out of its weight class and one wonders how Foreign Affair can produce a ripasso-style wine this good at this price… Can drink now with grilled red meats or cellar 5+ years. Good value wine for savvy shoppers.” Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13, 2018

This is a smooth and balanced wine with delicious flavours of black cherry, blackberries, blueberry, and black currants with subtle smoke, oak, and spice cake notes on the lingering finish.

The 2016 vintage was hot and sunny and the vines produced fruit with very ripe flavours and lower acidity—a great Niagara vintage! A ripasso style wine with Cabernet Franc (62%), Cabernet Sauvignon (25%) and Merlot (13%) grapes repassed over the skins and lees of our appassimento red grapes. This wine was barrel aged for 9 months.
