2019 Estate Mouton Noir
At Stone Tower we have crafted our second version of a “second” wine. Some would consider this a press wine. Pressing brings more tannins, and often more robust flavor. Some winemakers refer to this process as a continuum – the next step in getting the most out of grapes after utilizing the prized free run juice. This wine was produced from our estate red grapes harvested in 2019. The wine has a very different character than the one crafted the previous year. The 2019 growing season was fantastic and we saw some beautiful fruit. This wine is a soft well-rounded wine where we experience black current on the nose and palate, some soft and well-rounded tannins, and a lovely finish. The wine pairs extremely well with all kinds of cheese, grille pork, grilled chicken, stews and pizza.
