Due Uve is a fun, playful wine. Due Uve engenders excitement. Our new 2013 vintage is fresh, delicious experience. The 2013 Due Uve (two grapes) is a blend of 58% Syrah and 42% Dornfelder.
The Syrah and the Dornfelder come from the Mudd West Vineyard in Hallockville on the North Fork. All the fruit was hand-harvested, de-stemmed into one-ton bins, stomped on by foot, and punched down by hand and shovel. After primary fermentation the wine was racked to all old neutral barrels, where it spent fourteen months before being gravity bottled (without fining or filtration) on December 12th, 2014.
Our 2013 Due Uve is a ruby red color with purple inflections. The wine is dry, medium-bodied, and juicy, has moderate alcohol and is vibrant and tasty. There are floral, fruit, mineral and spice components to the flavor and aroma profile. Violets, blueberry, black raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, wet stone, cocoa, cinnamon and just a touch of black pepper are some of the descriptors that come to mind.
This wine possesses lightness and elegance but is robust and deep enough to tackle some exotic flavor experiences. Try with soy and teriyaki flavors as well as more classic preparations of fish, poultry, grain, pork, and veal and pasta dishes. Due Uve is very attractive, very approachable and very versatile. This is an uber-delicious wine to enjoy in its vibrant youth and over the next 5-7 years on top of being priced and styled to enjoy every day with great satisfaction. Only 207 cases were bottled of the 2013 vintage!
