Vin gris de Chambourcin 2003

Vin gris de Chambourcin 2003 Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: Estate grown, 20-year old Chambourcin vines yielded excellent fruit despite the unusually cold and wet summer and fall. Cold pressing of whole clusters along with cold fermentation (55F for 3 weeks) and the use of Prise de Mousse yeast emphasizes the bright fruit that is part and parcel of cool climate Chambourcin.

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.
