Keel and Curley Red Blend Wild Berry Pinot Noir NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wind berry Pinot Noir is a wonderful blend of Pinot Noir grapes with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. This wine won best in show in the 2006 Florida state wine competition, making it the best wine made in the state of Florida for 2006. Pleasing to the palate of all kinds of wine enthusiasts, dry or sweet consumers. This wine is incredibly balanced with perfect acidity, fruit forward with the taste of all the berries developing all the way to the finish. Fermented cold and in small tanks for great control over flavor, its bottled quickly and made to be consumed young, which allows for extra low sulfites. Best served at room temperature or chilled anytime.

Keel and Curley Winery was started in spring of 2003 in the kitchen of founder and owner, Joe Keel. Keel, a central Florida blueberry farmer wanted to find something to do with his end of crop blueberries. As in most produce farming, once the market price reaches a price which is lower than harvest and sale commissions, farms stop harvesting their crops. At this time in the season, there are still a lot of quality blueberries on the bushes. So Keel asked himself, “what can I do with this perfectly good fruit, to use it in a productive way and not waste it? Jellies, jams, blueberry pies? No!” Keel decided blueberry wine would be interesting to dabble with in the family farm house kitchen. He started that spring of 2003 with 10 gallons of blueberry wine. The wine came out so-so, but drinkable. So he made 10 more gallons and it got better each time. So was the beginning of a company he started with production of over 20,000 cases of quality wines that the company produces to this day. Keel and Curley Winery, produces three types of Blueberry wines, each with a very distinct taste. The first is a sweet wine, the second, a semi-dry or semi-sweet wine, and the third, a dry wine. All three wines are made from 100% blueberries. Fusion wines are wines that are fused, or blended wines. Part grape based wines, (for example, Merlot or Chardonnay) blended with fruit juices (Strawberry or Tangerine). Keel and Curley winery produces seven (7) different Fusion wines. Read less
