At Fulldraw, we meticulously pick, process, and ferment each varietal separately. By doing so, this allows us to blend an impeccably balanced wine among all three varietals each contributing something unique and special to the resulting blend. We are always surprised at how easily this blend comes together. This wine is a great representation of what the site contributes to all the varietals in one bottle—intense aromatics, bright lengthy finish, and finessed tannins.
Drawing from our love of cooking, the cleaver on the label currently resides in the knife block in our kitchen and gets put to work on a regular basis. It was custom made for us from a small artisan cutler in Georgia, Bloodroot Blades, which we randomly stumbled across. With its striking patina we thought it would look great on a label. After drinking a glass, or a few, of this wine, I slammed the cleaver into a chopping block. Rebecca yelled at me to not touch it and grabbed her camera resulting in the label!
Pop and pour, this vintage is well rounded and and balanced. The structure and flavor profile will only get better with air or a little time. The aromatics of this wine are always a favorite for us! If consuming within the first year of receiving your shipment, decant for 2+ hours. This wine will not disappoint.$85 · Members Only
