Lakeside RedWinehaven Deer Garden Red Chisago

Tasting Notes
Lakeside Red is truly a unique semi-sweet red wine made from Winehaven's patented Chisago grapes grown in our estate vineyard in Chisago City, Minnesota.  This wine has beautiful garnet color with intense aromas of rose petals, blueberry jam and cardamom spice.  Upfront flavors of black raspberry and lively acai are balanced with sweet plums while nutmeg spice lingers on the finish. 


Winemaking
Chisago grapes from our estate vineyard were sorted and destemmed to a stainless stell tank for three day of cold soaking.  Following the cold soak, yeast was added and pump overs commenced twice daily, for the duration of primary fermendation.  Once fermentation was completed, the wine was drained and pressed to neutral berries for malolactic fermentation before bottling in April.

Food Pairings
Lakeside Red is exceptional paired with rich, decadent chocolate desserts, as well as vanilla bean ice cream or bread pudding with plum or persimmons.  Fruit-based tarts, shortcakes, fruitcakes, pumpkin pie, pecan pie or baked apples pair nicely with Lakeside Red.
