Mount Pleasant Estates Claret


This is a reformatted version of our former Hillside Reserve product from the 1990s.   Made from St. Vincent and Chardonel, this wine has great top notes of tree fruits and French oak with a delicatedly dry and mild finish.   Great by itself, it pairs well with lighter red sauces, hickory BBQ ribs and brie cheese.

We created this wine from an older technique that we used in the 1990’s to create our Hillside Reserve wines.  Enriched with some Augusta Chardonel to round some fruit tones, our Claret is a blend of 2017 St. Vincent and 2018 Chardonel.  The owner headed up the old school production of the St. Vincent and winemaker Matt Brennecke created the Chardonel.   The softening pairing has created a neat juxtaposition with the Burtonesque oak and cherry tones from the Hillside Reserve and the sweet  Bartlett pear flavors of Chardonel.  Finished dry and a great glass of wine to have at the end of the day.
