Wine maker notes
Although this wine is made with a traditional grape variety, the vinification was done in a modern style. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures, around 75°F and the wine is aged in French oak to add complexity and roundness to the blend resulting in a juicy, intense and full-flavored wine.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 12.5%

Food pairing
Excellent with beef, barbeque or firm cheeses.

Producer
Mel and Janie are from England but both now US citizens. Mel has been in the wine business ever since leaving school and he met Janie when they were only twelve and thirteen (she played the piano and he played the guitar!) and as they grew up together, they shared a passion for food and wine. They married at 19 and 20. The couple left England to live in France in 1970 and started a company called Master Wines and began selling little known French wines in the USA. Mel was a pioneer in bringing great wine values to the USA from France.
