Corot Noir

Corot Noir Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: A more delicate light to medium body dry red wine. Very floral in its flavor profile with even a touch of orange peel on the back end. Made from grapes from the Pirotte Vineyard south of Montrose, Iowa. This wine is very versatile, as it goes well with all types of good cuisine. Serve slightly chilled, 15 minutes in the "fridge" should be good.

Varietal Definition
Corot Noir:
Corot noir is the result of a cross between hybrids Seyve Villard 18-307 and Steuben in 1970. It ripens mid-season to late-season, and according to Reisch, its wines "are free of the hybrid aromas typical of many other red hybrid grapes, and can be used for varietal wine production or for blending. The distinctive red wine has a deep red color and attractive berry and cherry fruit aromas."
