2019 Living Roots Session Red 750ml
Sessionable without sacrificing flavour, our new Session range features wines that are 7 - 10% alcohol -- perfect for pairing with warm weather, spicy foods, and extended drinking sessions. Our Session Red is a blend of hybrids and vinifera that are well-suited to the cool climate of the Finger Lakes, picked early for lower alcohol while still achieving ripe flavors, spice and texture.
The base of the blend is Geneva Red Orange Rosé, aka Geneva Red free-run juice, fermented with Pinot Gris and Riesling skins, with 8% each of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Blaüfrankisch, Regent and Petit Pearl in the final blend. All fermented wild, some carbonic maceration, and aged in older oak. The resulting wine has high-toned floral aromas, juicy raspberry characters, savory pepper and chalky tannins.
