Just About Ranch, Terra Nova Vineyard and Farm
Apple wine is barrel-aged and blended to create this European-style country wine. Maraschino and red cherry on the nose with a delightfully lush and rich palate of baked red apples, cinnamon and clove. Naturally vegan and gluten free.
Terroir - All About Ranch - Soils consisting of sandy gravelly marine over sandy gravelly morainal leading to schistic clay at 12-16' depths. Quadra - On the very tip of Quadra island, Cape Mudge overlooks the Salish sea. This is predominately loam with underlying glacier deposit. Great heat units and beautiful winds off of the water. Farming: Sustainably farmed with no harsh chemicals, sprays or fertilizers. Ripeness of the apples was chosen as they begin to fall from the tree.
Pressed to neutral Burgundy oak. Completing fermentation in oak and then racked them off of their lees into burgundy barrels last containing Pinot Noir. Let aged for two years un Burgundy.
Food Pairing Notes
Fantastic with hard cheeses and apple deserts.
