WineDiva's Review

Charming, juicy, fragrant.
From Stag's Hollow's estate Shuttleworth Vineyard, the Dolcetto grapes were foot stomped, and then sealed up for 5 days of cold maceration. After the cold soak, the bins were pressed directly into a concrete tank (full solids) and inoculated with a selected yeast. Once the primary ferment finished, the wine was racked off of its lees, into stainless steel, where it was stabilized, filtered and finally bottled.
This delightful Dolcetto (an Italian variety that means: little sweet one) is charming but by no means sweet--it's a vibrant ruby red wine that needs food.
Chill and pour to discover notes of Maraschino cherries, red apple skin, rhubarb and cranberry, dried rose petals, pipe tobacco and blood oranges. The palate is bone dry and very tart, classic bitterness attacks the tongue; sour cherries, bracing citrus and tobacco flavours dominate. It has structure, lively acidity and textural tannins.
Youthful and fresh--pair with pizza, fatty fish, pork belly, cheese and charcuterie, Lebanese dishes, beet and goat cheese salad.
