SHELBURNE VINEYARDS – IAPETUS WINE, TECTONIC
100% La Crescent. Dry
The aroma is complex and layered, with notes of apricot, peach, raisin, white pepper, tea, rose water, and floral attributes; you could keep your nose in this all day. This vintage is light-bodied and has delicacy and balance.
On the palate, the tannins and acidity are integrated, with a tartness and texture reminiscent of tea and thick-skinned tropical fruits; you may be confused at first, but you’ll keep coming back.
Serve room temp or slightly chilled.
Following destemming and gentle crushing, the grapes for this wine went into a stainless steel tank to ferment. Pressing was performed after a forty-two-day maceration on skins. About eighty percent of the wine was sent to neutral oak to age sur lie with weekly battonage for three and a half months and the other fifth was aged in stainless steel. After seven months, the lots were blended and allowed to come together prior to bottling.
