No Sulfites Detected. Made from Organic Grapes. This light, simple, picnic style wine lends itself both to white and red wine applications. The fresh grape nose comes through even with a slight chill on it. It's backbone is Grenache, with Syrah and Sangiovese added for color and body. There is even a small amount of Viognier added for the aromatics.
|Wine maker notes
|Every time we taste this wine from the tank, we think of Pinot Noir, which is odd as there is none in the blend. Cote Zero is a composite of Grenache, Syrah,and a bit of Viogner to round out the Rhone backbone. The mellowest of the line, this should make for a great summer quaffing wine.
Like many Pinot Noirs, this wine can have the tendency to drop a light sediment. You can stand it upright for a day or two and decant, or just enjoy the hors d’oeuvres in every glass.
