Description

Broc Cellars Trousseau Noir 2021

Broc Cellars Trousseau Noir makes for an elegant appearance with its light ruby red colour. The nose opens to creme de cassis aromas before evolving into flavours of spiced plums on the palate.

85% Trousseau Noir and 15% Zinfandel. The fruit for this wine comes from Wirth Ranch on the western edge of Solano County Green Valley, a small area located just southeast of Napa Valley. Wirth Ranch is planted on steep-sloped, iron-rich volcanic soils. Steve Wirth farms the vineyard organically and took over the property from his father. The Zinfandel is a younger planting growing next to the Trousseau vines.

100% destemming and fermentation of the Trousseau Noir and Zinfandel grapes together in open top stainless fermenters. After pressing, the wine moves into concrete tank for 6 months. No filtering before bottling.
