2015 Jongleur Petit Verdot

2015 Jongleur Petit Verdot
2015 Jongleur Petit Verdot

A Jongleur is a medieval wanderer, entertainer, and juggler.  We borrowed the term Jongleur as a metaphor for our lifestyle as small business owners, winemakers, and parents of three daughters.

Tasting notes

Dark red hue, characteristic of Petit Verdot.  Aromas of ripe blueberries, lilacs, jasmine, wet stones, freshly tilled earth, and butterscotch leap from the glass.  Flavors include floral notes, blueberries, white pepper, and caramel.  The acidity is plentiful and balancing with a long finish.  The Petit Verdot is fresh, youthful, and delicious.  The Jongleur is our most hedonistic tasting wine and a perfect wine to pair with red meats, barbecue, hearty cheeses, and stews. Enjoy through 2027.

Production notes

We picked the Dionysus Petit Verdot on September 8th - the earliest we have ever picked.  Our goal was to pick as early as possible to maximize acidity and freshness. All the grapes were hand-harvested, hand-sorted, and fermented by yeasts native to their respective vineyards.  All the grapes were punched down two times daily until pressing.  Only the free-run wine was used for the Jongleur.  The Jongleur was aged in French Oak barrels (23% new) for 22 months prior to bottling in July of 2017.
