Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A juicy fruit basket of cherry, strawberry and raspberry with herbal notes of bell pepper and basil. A pleasant light mouthfeel with notes of fennel seed on the finish.
Vineyard Notes
This half acre vineyard was originally planted in 1993 to Sangiovese. We named the vineyard after MacLaren's battle cry "Creag an Tuirc", which translates from Gaelic as the BoarsĀ Rock. The Boars Rock is a stony crag high above the village of Balquhidder and served as the clan's gathering place.
Winemaker Notes
Handpicked on the morning of October 1st, the fruit was destemmed and fermented on it's native yeast. The wine was on skins for 11 days after which it was pressed off to two barrels and aged for 12 months. The wine was bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Food Pairing Notes
Red sauce pastas and pizza.
