Red Alchemy

$17

Winemaker Amy LaBelle blends three red grapes to create this easy-to-drink red dinner wine full of fruit, spice and woodland notes that is neither too light nor too heavy. Red Alchemy is a crowd-pleasing wine that complements poultry, beef or salmon dishes. Our Noiret grapes are grown in the Pedroso Vineyard, which sits at the front of our Amherst property as you drive by.

Aged in French oak barrels for approximately 6 months, then transferred to steel tank and infused with French oak cubes for approximately 6 months.

May be cellared up to 5 years.

 

About Noiret:  Moderately cold-hardy grape created from a complex cross in 1973 at Cornell University and it withstands temperatures to -14 °F. Noiret produces wines with a deep red color, good tannins, and unusually robust pepper overtones.

About Baco Noir:  French-American hybrid grape variety that prefers cooler climates for growing. This grape is a grower-friendly alternative to Pinot Noir. It produces light to medium body red wines with good acidity and rich fruit tones.

About Corot Noir:  Also developed at Cornell University and released in 2006. Produces a deep red color, similar to Noiret, but reflects berry and cherry fruit aromas.
