Aprés Rosé is a Brut, made traditionally Méthode Champenoise and aged for two years. It is fresh, crisp and fruit-forward with wild strawberry notes and a zippy, bright finish.
Aprés means "after" in French. Sparkling wine was the preference of French kings at festivities and rites of passage, and eventually gained worldwide renown for its role at elegant celebrations. Today it is still used to toast momentous occasions. Aprés is our tribute to all those extraordinary moments worth celebrating.
Verve is a vibrant and fresh style of sparkling, showcased by the bright stone fruit notes on the nose accompanied by a hint of melon. Peach and asian pear come through on the palate first, leading to a rounded mid-palate that finishes off with mouthwatering acidity. Hints of shortbread are nicely cleansed by the pleasing effervescence of the wine. This fresh style of sparkling wine is an unpretentious fun wine to enjoy with good friends and good food.
37% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 17% Petit Verdot and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon
This bright salmon-hued Rosé is bursting with red fruit aromas of strawberry and watermelon. This wine begins with the same strawberry note on the palate and transitions to grapefruit and watermelon on the finish. This is a Provençale style Rosé that is bright and fresh that is balanced with ample acidity that emphasizes the strong fruit on the finish and drinks as smooth as water.
Treating a white grape, Petit Manseng in this case, like a red wine and fermenting it on the skins pays homage to ancient winemaking techniques. This process gives the wine a unique aroma of marzipan and baked apple. Fruit flavors including persimmon and Asian pear come out on the palate, followed by white tea with a honey component on the finish making this a one-of-a-kind wine.
Often made into a late-harvest dessert wine, our version is more of an off-dry Aperitif-style wine with good acidity, higher alcohol and a small amount of sweetness to help stimulate the palate before a meal. Notes of ripe pineapple, baked apple and shaved coconut are abundant as they make their way through this fuller bodied white. The bright acidity that this variety is known for helps cleanse off the palate for the next sip of wine and food to follow.
Swagger is made in the traditional port-style entirely from Chambourcin, which gives this wine a deep ruby color and distinct black cherry flavor. The wine is a drier ruby style but well balanced with smooth tannins and acidity that help highlight the subtle smokiness and caramel undertones from the bourbon barrel ageing.
Starting with Edition II, Swagger has been made in the Solera style of fortified wine making, which means that multiple vintages of the wine are blended together to help maintain quality and consistency from year to year.
