  Late Harvest Vidal
100% Vidal, the grapes are frozen and pressed while frozen. Only the first thawed juice is used (AKA icewine). The wine fermented slowly in old French oak and was stopped by chilling (putting the barrels outside in February) to retain fruit and sweetness. This wine should become more honeyed and spicier with age.
  Petit Verdot
We hand sort before destemming and then again afterwards to remove pink berries and stem pieces. Fermentation begins naturally in small one ton fermentors. We punch down by hand once or twice per day. Pressing takes place after about 7 to 10 days, usually at dryness. The wine was aged in new and old (neutral) oak barrels and puncheons (French, Hungarian and some Virginia) for 18 months. 78% Petit Verdot, 12% Carmenère;, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
  Rosé
Aromas: Sour cherry, red raspberry, lingonberry, mint and white peach. Palate: Lively, refreshing with a lemon zest finish that tangos with light tannins. Food Pairings: Pairs with picnic or al fresco dining, cold meats, cold seafood, smoked fish and tabouleh. Winemaking: Drink now.
  Seyval
Grapes are hand sorted before crushing and pressing. Cold fermentation preserves the freshness of the grape. No oak is used. Seyval is bottled in the winter and is ready to drink by summer. A bit of residual CO2 from fermentation gives the wine a bit of spritz. It is best when consumed within two to three years of bottling when it is fresh and lively.
  Vidal Riesling
The goal is to retain the fresh fruit characteristics of each grape. Riesling contributes aroma, tropical fruit and acidity; Vidal gives spice, weight, and structure. The blend is cold fermented. Fermentation is stopped by chilling when the residual sweetness is in balance with the fruit and acidity. The wine is bottled in late winter and is immediately ready to drink. 81% Vidal, 19% Riesling.
