Joy Red

Joy Red Wine Details

Description: Stainless steel fermentation provides a perceptible acidity for this deep-colored, earthy wine. 100% Chambourcin grapes give depth of character with flavors of blackberry and plum. A fine complement to simple stews or more elegant fare and ripened cheeses.

Varietal Definition
A french-american hybrid used to make red wines with fruity flavors and some herbaceousness. Grown in the cooler regions of Eastern U.S. and Canada. Decreasing acreages also found in Europe; due to stringent European Union rules these varieties cannot be blended with traditional varieties.
