Artisan Wines News in September

Harvest 2011
Our harvest startet last weekend with early ripening Saint Laurent. We took the chance of the good weather to pick the grapes for our Sauvignon Blanc as well. In the last third of it's fermentation the Pure Sauvignon Blanc "Sturm" releases scents of ripe pears, gooseberries and pineapples.
Thursday we brought in the first batches of Welschriesling and the next week will be devoted to pick the better part of our Zweigelts. Last grapes to come in will be the Merlot for our "The Artisan" 2011.
One will find real time news of harvest at Facebook - Artisan Wines and Twitter.

Two new wines
The Pure Line is joined by the Pure Saint Laurent 2010. The wine shows a middle red hue with purple reflexions, unoaked fruit forward style, upfront red berries with hints of blackberries, fresh and lovely with an intense mid palate and well balanced tannin structure, cherry flavors with lucious red currant and rose hip follows through.

The second wine to hit the shelves is our flagship wine "The Artisan" 2009. "The Artisan" is always sourced from the best and oldest vineyards and will please lovers of age-worthy bold wines. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Zweigelt matured in 100% new barriques. As this wine will come in tiny quantities (283 hand-signed and numbered bottles!), be quick to save your share.

Please let us know how you like our wine at Artisan Wines on Facebook and as Wine comment respectively. We are looking forward to reading your takes on our wines.
