Fence Stile Vineyards and Winery is excited to introduce Mûre Blanche - a new limited-quantity wine. Released in early February, Mûre Blanche is only available in our Tasting Room. If you purchase four bottles of this special wine during the month of February, then you will receive a pair of Fence Stile logo dessert glasses.
To celebrate Valentine's Day, we have fashioned a Mûre Blanche cocktail. On February 10th and 11th, enjoy handmade Blackberry Truffles with the purchase of two Mûre Blanche cocktails.
ABOUT THE WINE
Mûre Blanche is a blackberry Vidal Blanc dessert wine made using juice from late harvest 2017 grapes and estate-grown blackberries. Packaged in 375-milliliter bottles, this young wine was created to drink with the arrival of spring and not meant to be aged.
To develop this dessert wine, Vidal grapes were harvested in November rather than in late August or early September to develop character and sugar levels. Tasted fresh off the vine, the grape's juice yielded intense golden raisin notes and honeyed sweetness. Blackberries, harvested from Fence Stile's bushes last summer, were added to the Vidal Blanc grape crush. A wine bladder press was used to collect the fruit juices for this small-batch, limited-edition wine. After aging in a stainless steel tank, the unfiltered wine was bottled at the beginning of the New Year in early January.
Mûre Blanche was purposely unfiltered to preserve the wine's character, resulting in a slightly hazy appearance. The addition of blackberry juice infused the wine with a cranberry-rose color. Delicate berry and cranberry flavors finish with subtle sweetness.
The artwork on the wine label features an image from an original acrylic painting by Shriti's sister, Mayuri. The original painting is on display in the Tasting Room.
