2017 La Crescent

From the very beginning we have been working with the wonderful University of Minnesota grape La Crescent. 2017 is the fifth vintage we have made a 100% La Crescent Wine. We hand-picked the fruit in early September and whole cluster pressed the fruit immediately. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 50 degrees Fahrenheit to retain its freshness and aromatics. The 5% residual sugar helps balance out the high acidity La Crescent is known to have. The wine was blended and bottled at the winery in mid January. 

The wine tastes and smells like fresh pineapple, other tropical fruits and Jolly Rancher Green Apple. There are also suggestions of peach, rose petals and ice cold pear. The wine has excellent concentration, lasts long on the palate, and finishes fresh and bright. 

The wine is simply wonderful to enjoy all by itself, but it can also pair with a variety of spicy and flavorful cuisines: Thai, Chinese, or other spicy Asian Foods
