The Embrace 2017


2017 ~ 750ml
12.7% alc./vol.

Tasting Notes
This is a light to medium bodied red with delicious aromas of red currant, raspberry, wild strawberry, pomegranate and slight spice on the nose. The palate is smooth with bright acidity, gentle tannins and flavours to match the nose.

Winemaker Notes
The 2017 vintage began cool and rainy however a warm snap in early Autumn allowed the fruit to fully ripen in time for harvest.

Gamay 50% ● Pinot Noir 50%

A ripasso style wine with the Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes harvested, pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The wine was then repassed over the skins and lees of our appassimento red grapes giving added depth and flavour.

This wine is intended to be enjoyed young but also has an estimated aging potential of 2 to 4 years.

Wine and Food Pairing
Its smooth tannins and gentle acidity make this wine a natural choice to pair with cedar plank salmon, roasted chicken, salmon or turkey burgers, leg of lamb, tuna steak, pork tenderloin and raclette.
