Chaucer's Raspberry Wine is like a first kiss, innocent and impressionable. Made from 100% pure fruit, there is a clear, light crimson color and the flavor is bursting with enticing aromas of freshly crushed raspberries
The fruit for this elegant wine was grown in an orchard near Watsonville, CA – a cool region with seasonal morning fog during the summer, ideal for the production of quality berries. The varieties of raspberry grown in this area have a very firm texture and an intense flavor.
Well–drained, sandy loam soils along the Pajaro River and Corralitos Creek yield berries with naturally high acids with adequate sugar levels. The cool microclimate near Watsonville enables growers to use minimal amounts of water during the growing season to ensuring the delicate character of this fine berry is not lost.
This fruit wine is not fortified and contains only 10% alcohol. Hence, this wine should be consumed shortly after purchase to enjoy its natural and rich flavor.
