Red Schooner Transit No. 1 Red California

Description

This is their new red. Different from the Voyage wine. 

Legendary for the production of memorable red wines, South Australia was our inspiration for Transit. We began with finding high-caliber grapes - always the key to each of our wines. Next came transit over ocean waters, a practice now both common and efficient for fruits and vegetables. The chilled grapes arrived at Caymus, as if just harvested. 

We use time-honored winemaking techniques to extract deep color and rich tannins during fermentation, while staying attuned to place of origin. One can smell a slight mint character, likely a derivative of native trees. A ripe style, along with the nuance of dried fruit, reflects Australia's warm, dry conditions. Aging was in French oak barrels, with bottling in April 2018. Instead of a vintage date, each bottle will be known by its transit - this first bottling is: Red Schooner Transit 1.
