Our one of a kind chillable red wine. Made from the historic DeChaunac grape, an old French American hybrid grape.
Fruit from the beautiful Patrician Verona Vineyard on Cayuga Lake, these storied vines were planted in 1973. We pick the dark red fruit early, press it in to a red juice and ferment that juice on used Chardonnay skins, making this wine a sort of bridge between a light red wine and an orange wine.
Amber and garnet hued the wine appears in the glass almost like an orange wine. Aromas are full of cranberry, fresh cherry, and rose. The palate is refreshing with medium acidity and a broad midpalate with light tannins. Flavors of blood orange and cherries. Enjoy the wine with a chill.

This is joyful. Relatively low in alcohol (9.5% alcohol), it’s fresh with juicy raspberry and cherry fruit showing nice focus and purity. Lovely fruit here, and great balance. 91/100
