Wine: J. Lohr Estates Wildflower Valdiguié

Valdiguie

Valdiguie

Valdiguie is another of those esoteric grapes that has large berries and typically goes through fermentation without crushing the grapes. This produces a fruit driven, lighter style of wine which is fairly low in tannic acid. Typically grown in cooler, wind driven climates valdiguie typically has lower sugar content and bright acidity allowing for brilliant fruit driven flavors to explode on the palate.

Among my favorite valdiguie wines is that produced by J. Lohr Winery. This is a wine that I go to anytime I have “that couple” composed by the white wine drinker and the red wine drinker who want to share a special bottle of wine- and the red wine drinker has grown weary of sharing white wines. With a lower tannic structure in valdiguie wines, it lacks that “pucker factor” that disillusions the white wine lover and has enough bright acidity to pair with food and be enjoyed by the red wine lover.

Steve Peck, the wine maker for this wine describes it as follows: This wine is vibrant and red-purple in color with bright aromas of boysenberry, Bing cherry, raspberry and pomegranate. The fruit complexion on the palate is equally bright, dominated by pomegranate and raspberry. Drink your last bottle just in time for the release of the new vintage! Serve chilled.

And I can’t agree make a better description than that – So, let’s pour a glass of the Windflower Valdiguie from J. Lohr Winery and raise our glasses to celebrate the things that make us, and our wines, unique.
