Limited Release for Vista Wine Club Members

Our hand-picked, dry, limited-production, Blaufränkisch Nouveau Style is a new wine for a new year that captures the creative spirit of our winemaking team. Between a traditional rose and a classic red wine in color, it is designed for early consumption, delighting your palate with its bright cranberry and raspberry notes and its delicate structure.

The Austrian variety Blaufränkisch (in Germany, Lemberger), is a red grape of central European origin that grows happily in our relatively cool Finger Lakes terroir.  Rather than fermenting the Blaufränkisch juice traditionally, that is, after crushing and de-stemming the fruit, we kept the clusters and berries intact, and fermented them in a CO2-saturated vessel for 20 days--a method called carbonic maceration.  We then pressed the whole clusters and allowed the fermentation to finish naturally without the skins.

Enjoy at room temperature, or slightly chilled, with a tasty charcuterie board, savory poultry dish, or on its own.

This wine was extremely impressive ... and carbonic fermentation to boast! Innovative, priceless, undeniable. What more could you ask for? I’ll be keeping my eye on this team for the next few years. This is special - Thank you!
