In October 2007 Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard held our first annual “Stomp” event, a fall celebration of winemaking that features a friendly competition of guests, friends and family pressing red grapes with their feet old-world style. With leftover grapes, an open tank and some French Oak barrels, the Stomp wine was born. The results were such a hit that Sugarloaf opted to continue producing this popular quaff. The 2014 Stomp is not so much a light, off-dry red, but a serious red wine that just happens to balance nicely with a higher degree of residual sugar. Pair this wine with anything you can carry to a picnic, festival or a day at the beach. Drink now! Serve Chilled.
2014 Stomp Sugarloaf produces this off-dry, easy drinking red to reflect the revelry of those October Stomp Festival days. This wine exhibits a ruby red color with aromas of wild cherries and strawberry jam. On the palate, this wine shows off elements of bilberry and a hint of redcurrant.
