Tasting Notes

Our first ever “right bank” inspired red blend, with Sachau Vineyard Merlot leading the way accompanied by Smith Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon and Casa de Vinas Malbec. While still very much in its youth, this style wine is brand new to Nottingham and we could not wait any longer to get it out into the world!! Created by our Assistant Winemaker Alex Wolfe, this namesake blend is complex, structured and is enjoyable now or can lay down for years to come!

Production

Harvested between September 20th and October 17th. Destemmed without crushing and fermented in 100% open top bins with hand punchdowns. Inoculated with various commercial yeasts. All lots pressed & coopered separately post primary with ML in barrel. Coopered in 50% new French oak, 25% 2nd use American and 25% 2nd use Hungarian.
