Early Mountain winemaker Ben Jordan is also at the helm here for this boutique project. They source fruit from dedicated farmers at higher elevations. andnbsp;This is 97% Cabernet Franc 2% Petit Manseng and 1% Riesling sourced from the Shenandoah Valley in Western Virginia, fermented with 20% whole clusters with native yeasts. Warm days and cool nights here keep the acid in check and preserve the freshness they are looking for. Malolactic fermentation and elevage is in old barriques. Crunchy cranberry and raspberry fruit with smoky spice and still plenty juicy. No doubt a project to keep your eyes on.
I am on board here. Looking forward to introducing some VA juice to my Cali friends. Expressive. Loire in style.
