HOODSPORT CABERNET/MERLOT

NEW RELEASE:

With a lot of fruit in the nose, our Hoodsport Cab-Merlot teases your palate with flavors of berries, vanilla, plum and chocolate before parting ways on a smooth peppery finish that is just right. Fire up the Weber, throw down some burgers and grill some wings. Too tired to cook? Get the door, it's.... (60% Cabernet 40% Merlot)

Technical Notes: The grapes for the Hoodsport Cabernet/Merlot came from the Roza Hills Vineyard. They were harvested between September 20th and November 2nd with the following average analyses: Brix 25.5 TA .58, pH 3.90. The Grapes were crushed and destemmed into stainless steel tanks leaving 30% whole berries. After a 24 hour cold soak, the grapes were inoculated with Prem. Cuvee and Pasteur Red wine yeasts. The Grapes Fermented on their skins for two weeks, with a 15 minute pump over twice a day. Once the must had extracted the right amount of flavor, color and tannin the tanks were pressed off and finished fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

Once the primary fermentation was complete, the wine was inoculated with ML starter. After completing this secondary ML fermentation, the wines were racked and SO2 adjusted. The Cabernet and Merlot wines were blended, lightly oaked, egg white fined, filtered and bottled.

This is a bright and lively white wine offers fresh aromas and flavors of melon & apricot, try with chicken, fish or seafood dishes.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and treated with Scottzyme Cinn-Free to help release varietal aromas and aid pressing.

The wine was protein stabilized with bentonite and sterile filtered before bottling.
