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.
