The Undiscovered Country package is made up of our unique, lesser known dry reds that are sure to intrigue and please your holiday guests this season.
Includes 1 bottle of Dornfelder, 1 bottle of Blaufrankisch, 1 bottle of Noiret, and 1 bottle of Carmine
Dornfelder. Available locally only at Presque Isle Wine Cellars, this dry, medium-bodied red is a true hidden gem. This German variety, just over 30 years old, has displayed an unrivaled speed of expansion in the vineyard industry and grows wonderfully in our Lake Erie wine region. Our Dornfelder was aged in both French and American oak barrels, boasting hints of rich berries and aromatic spices. Ending in a pleasant dried-cherry and light tannin finish, this vintage can be enjoyed nicely on its own or paired with game and red meat cuts.
Blaufrankisch. Fresh herbs and orange peels float amongst the fruity characteristics of our Blaufrankisch, an Austrian variety that grows well in our region. French and American oak barrels add a medium, spicy oak finish that ends in an airy coconut appeal. This light to medium-bodied, dry red rounds out a nice, hearty stew or pasta with a tomato or vinegar-based sauce. This beautifully colored wine also makes a very nice base for sangria.
Noiret. This delightful dry red wine comes from a relatively newly developed French Hybrid wine grape variety. Noiret is one of the latest generation high-quality hybrids that are achieving character and refinement on par with vinifera. A definite must-try. For 8 months, our vintage was aged in American oak barrels, adding depth to its black pepper and mint characteristics. Its smooth tannin finish complements classic Italian dishes or hot and spicy meals such as blackened fish or jambalaya.
Carmine. Another of our unique varietal offerings, Carmine is a cross of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carignan. Aged in American Oak, this deeply colored, cool climate red is light on the palate with hints of lemongrass, sassafras and mint. Finishing with notes of dark fruit and chocolate, it pairs nicely with grilled beef, pork or roast poultry and with Cajun or Creole fare.
