Channing Daughters Due Uve 2014

Channing Daughters Due Uve 2014

Sku: 044822

Our 2009 Due Uve (two grapes) is a blend of 72% Syrah and 28% Merlot. The Syrah comes from the Mudd West vineyard in Hallocksville and the Merlot comes from Samís Vineyard in Aquebogue. All the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed into one ton bins, stomped on by foot and punched down by hand. The wine was racked to barrels, hogsheads and puncheons (23% were new, 77% were old) where it spent eight months before a light filtration and gravity bottling. Only 485 cases were produced.

Tasting notes
Our 2009 Due Uve is a translucent ruby red color with purple inflections. The wine is dry, medium-bodied and juicy, has moderate alcohol and is fresh and delicious. There are floral, fruit, mineral and spice components that comprise the flavor and aroma profiles. Violets, black pepper, raspberry, blackberry, cherry, wet stone, cocoa and cinnamon are descriptors that come to mind but more often than not you smell and taste something new each time you re-visit the glass. This wine possesses lightness and elegance but is robust and rustic enough to tackle some exotic flavor experiences.

Food pairing
Try with soy and teriyaki flavors as well as more classic preparations of fish, poultry, grain, pork, veal and pasta dishes. Due Uve is very attractive, very approachable and very versatile. This is a fresh wine to enjoy in its vibrant youth and is priced and styled to enjoy everyday with great satisfaction.
