2019 Arandell

2019 Arandell

Arandell- This is a very unique Wine.   We were the only producer of this grape variety in 2017 and today very limited production is known worldwide.   Arandell was developed by Cornell University to be the most disease resistance grape out there.   With us in an Organic program, it was very important to be sure we had a grape that needed little or no spraying.   With our hearts into sustainable agriculture this was our first choice.   So, we purchased 750 of these plants in 2013 making us one of the oldest commercial vineyards that grow this grape.   It's been fun to stump the wine expert, as in a blind testing they never get it.  LOL  That is not the only reason that make this grape special, it's it's ability to be Virginia red with soft tannins.  It ripens early, bud breaks late and can set the stage for wonderful grapes to go to your winemaker.   Grapes that have fully ripened and met the chemical structure to make excellent wines.   Arandell 2017 was put before a tasting group in Isreall to determine what grapes would be grown there......Arandell 2017 made that cut.   We  were so excited to be a part of that.   We are not stopping there of course....this wie was sent to England for review to be included in a book that covers all grape varietals  around the world.  2019 Arandell exhibits notes of blueberry, sandalwood and sweet tobacco of course you may find something else.  The growing year was fantastic and produced a wonderful wine.    It was bottled July 8th, 2020.  This wine will not disappoint and I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how nice a hybrid grape grown in VA can be.   After all, we have yet to determine all the wonderful grapes that could be called VIRGINIAN.  This wine just won a Silver Metal in the California Sommelier Challenge 2020
