Chambourcin in an American/French hybrid first cultivated in 1963. Famed for it’s robustness and high yield, it is traditionally grown in the Mid-Atlantic wine regions of North America, and has found a happy home in the somewhat variable weather that the South Burnett can produce towards the end of vintage. Often used to blend with other wines, as it exhibits a deep colour (due to its rare trait of actually producing pink or red juice, rather than clear like many other red grape varieties) and has forthright aromatics. As a straight varietal wine, it is delicate, fresh & medium bodied wine with typical characteristics of subtle spice & lingering berry fruit, quite savoury and dry in the finish. Best served cool, and is a great compliment to charcuterie, antipasto or dark chocolate desserts.
