Is this wine for you?
Fox Hill Vineyard is planted ALMOST entirely to Italian varieties. The two Portuguese grapes that go into this wine are the exceptions. Souzao and Touriga Nacional are both primarily relegated to the production of fortified wine, both here and back home in Portugal, but these two meaty, herbal, tannic, intensely colored varieties I have found such intriguing success in bringing to life a more savory, earthy and structured version of pink wine. Its not just for porch pounding or deck drinking (although, feel free to continue to do so).
