2015 Lone Oak Tree Vineyard Marquette
2015 is our first Lone Oak Tree Vineyard Marquette since 2012. This is an immaculately cared for vineyard in Amboy, MN. Les and Twyla Curry own and take care of this special block of Marquette. In 2015 we hung this fruit out to the last minute and during the early morning hours of September 26th, it was picked by hand.
It was destemmed and gently crushed to tank, where we settled it for 5 days at 50 degrees F. The fermentation lasted almost 2 weeks, at which it was lightly pressed. The wine spent 16 months in barrel before bottling in January 2017.
On the nose, ripe cherries, deep berries and cassis with light hints of chocolate. A firm texture on the entry with white pepper and grilled meats. Pair with steak tartar or filet mignon.
