ARIS 2013 Petit Verdot Port
The ARIS 2013 Petit Verdot Port is 100% petit verdot, made from grapes grown sustainably at Heringer Vineyard Estates in Clarksburg. Harvested on October 23, 2013, the grapes were delivered cool to our cellar for crushing. After two days of cold soaking for color extraction, we began fermentation. When the grape sugars reached 9%, we began foot pressing and fortifying. Our unique foot press allows the juice to run freely, followed by a gentle press to avoid extracting unwanted tannins. The fortifying spirit is aged in a unique oak solera system for an average of 7 years, and the dark, aromatic, full-bodied spirit adds complexity and maturity to the finished port. Once fortified, the port was aged in small, neutral oak casks for 2 years before bottling. 167 cases.
