Neuhaus Wine Details
Price: $13.95 per bottle

Description: Neuhaus is the name of town that Franz and Anna Müllner came from in Bohemia. This dry red is 90% Marechal Foch and 10% Frontenac. This red was fermented relatively cool at 64*F. Most of the Frontenac grapes were kept in contact with the wine for nearly a month adding a bit more color, tannin and complexity. Matured with medium toasted American oak, this wine shows the potential of hybrid varieties in the north. Goes well with spicier steak, pork dishes or a good schnitzel.

Varietal Definition
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
Frontenac’s overall viticultural performance and excellent wine quality are directly responsible for its success in Minnesota, where more of its vines are growing than any other variety. This recently released red wine grape from the University of Minnesota is a cross of Landot 4511 and Vitis Riparia. The vine’s chief advantage is its extremely vigorous and productive nature.
