New Section!

(each newsletter will focus on a different variety)

 

Varietal Focus on "FRONTENAC"

frontenac2

red-grape2-s Ripens mid September  --  A new hardy red wine variety from Minnessota- very popular with winemakers, has a slight "cherry" overtone.

redwine-icon  Usage Notes  -- Frontenac makes a big, red wine whose aroma and flavor are dominated by cheery notes, with lesser hints of blackcurrant and general red fruit.Other flavors noticed are notes of grass, green bean, evergreen, tar, and even chocolate.

The main consideration in making Frontenac wine is the high initial acidity, which should be lowered in making most wine styles.  This is usually done by:  adding water to dilute, malolactic fermentation, adding potassium bicarbonate, and chill proofing to remove excess tartaric acid. All 4 practices may sometimes be needed. (some text is from Mitchell Vineyard)

Some very good Frontenac winemaking recipes are on the Mitchell Vineyard website....

"The Straight Talk On Acid Testing Wine" from E. C. Kraus...
