Our Red Rhône Style wine blend takes five estate grown grape varieties and combines them to create a unique synergy of flavors. In this wine, aromatic elements come from Grenache and Mourvedre; structure and density come from Syrah; and finishing notes and fruit acidity come from Cinsaut and Counoise. It’s a vinous jig saw puzzle ultimately rendered into a harmonious blend.
Adelaida’s Rhône varieties are grown on a steep south-facing ridge top at 1900ft elevation named Anna's Vineyard. Made as separate wines in a mix of new and neutral French oak puncheons, they spend some 20 months in their original barrels before blending trials & bottling. 2011 brought early frosts, cool mid-summer weather and late warmth. Considered our most food friendly wine, Version Red is meant to be a medium weight wine showing bright, fruit with spice & a resilient finish. Best enjoyed now thru 2016.
