2015 Due Uve

Due Uve is a fun, playful and aromatic wine. Our new 2015 vintage is a rich, delicious and inviting experience. The 2015 Due Uve (two grapes) is a blend of 65% Syrah and 35% Dornfelder. The Syrah comes from the Mudd West Vineyard in Hallockville on the North Fork and the Dornfelder comes from our Sylvanus Vineyard here on our farm in Bridgehampton. All the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed into one-ton bins, stomped on by foot, and punched down by hand and shovel. After a wild/ambient primary fermentation the wine was racked to all older neutral barrels, where it spent nine months before being gravity bottled on July10th, 2016. Our 2015 Due Uve is a ruby red color with purple inflections and a dark core. The wine is dry, medium-bodied, and juicy, has moderate alcohol and is vibrant and tasty. There are floral, fruit, mineral and spice components to the flavor and aroma profile. Violets, blueberry, black raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, wet stone, cocoa, cinnamon and just a touch of black pepper are some of the descriptors that come to mind. This wine possesses lightness and elegance but is robust and deep enough to tackle some exotic flavor experiences. Try with soy and teriyaki flavors as well as more classic preparations of fish, poultry, grain, pork, and veal and pasta dishes. Due Uve is very attractive, very approachable and very versatile. This is an uber-delicious wine to enjoy in its vibrant youth and over the next 5-7 years on top of being priced and styled to enjoy every day with great satisfaction. Only 130 cases were bottled of the 2015 vintage!
