Winemaking & Vintage Notes

One of the wettest years on record, the 2018 vintage was a challenge for all wineries in the Mid-Atlantic. Wet conditions and the threat of Hurricane Florence resulted in an early pick for this Chambourcin. Sourced 100% from Naked Valley, the fruit was some of the best of the vintage, speaking to the durability of this hybrid.

Fermented at a slightly cooler temperature compared to most reds this wine was not overly extracted, allowing for softer tannins, and bright red fruit. The oak impact is also lighter than most reds are given, keeping the fruit at the forefront and a warm toast in the background.

Tasting notes

Created with Chambourcin from our Naked Valley Vineyard and aged for 18 months in new and used French oak, this new vintage of Ontology has flavors of cranberry, bing cherry, plum and sandalwood. Light and approachable with a soft supple mouthfeel.
