On Friday, October 17 we picked the last Clover Hill grape for this year. Who would have ever thought after this past winter that we could have managed an outstanding grape harvest? In case you forgot, the winter was so bitterly cold and snowed nearly every other day. To be honest, we weren’t even sure we would have grapevines after all the snow melted, let alone grapes. In addition, spring got off to a slow, cool start and we had bud break almost two weeks later than normal.
However, from bud break on, the grape growing conditions were ideal. The summer was full of sun-soaked, warm days without ever having big heat spikes. Humidity was relatively low by Pa. standards and rain seemed to happen at ideal times during the growing season. The end result was grapes rich in flavor and complexity with perfect sugar and acid levels. Now we have to practice patience as we wait for our winemaker, John Skrip III, to work his magic with the 2014 wines.
The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and flavorful wine that shows oak flavors of vanilla and spice and fruit flavors of raspberry and cherry. This wine is completely dry with medium tannins and pairs nicely with grilled steaks or winter stews. (Find recipes here). Now only $15.75.
