About This Item

Tasting Notes
Our newest Rebel is simply heavenly.  Redolent with ambrosial aromas of apricot, tamarind, neroli, and the gentlest aura of rose petal, this delicately citrine toned, oak aged Gewürz is certain to become your favorite vintage of Rebel.  With first sip, your palate is suffused with flavors of orange-vanilla buttercream, cardamom, and clove.  As you savor the sumptuous delight in your goblet you are greeted with the firm, but graceful grip of oak tannin drenched with mandarin oranges, white pepper, and clotted cream.  Exhilarating from start to finish.

Vintage Notes
Winter of 2021 gave us some surprisingly warm days and just enough snow to be protective when the temperatures dipped low.  Early spring was lovely - sunny and mostly dry with undisturbed flowering and fruit set.  Beginning in June, the summer rains arrived and persisted through August.  Once into September and more so in October, we were blessed with warm and dry weather, allowing us to round out our harvest season in good conditions.  The abundant moisture during the summer months resulted in a smaller crop but yielded very fruit-driven and expressive reds and sparkling and bright and refreshing whites and rosés.
