March 2022 Wine of the Month
Our 2020 Assemblage blend was crafted using the co-fermentation technique. Six elegant and delicate varieties were selected and fermented together. When we blend grapes from the beginning, we are creating a new flavor in the wine that would never exist by itself when blending the wines instead of the grapes. The Assemblage is a very exclusive red blend crafted for those wine lovers who like rare and complex wines.
