Floral Terranes - Merlot 2019Vom Boden
Shattering the boundaries of American wine and cider making, Floral Terranes is the unique melding of agriculture, art, and cultural preservation by Erik Longabardi and Benford Lepley. The grapes for this Merlot came from a "top-secret two-acre backyard" way out in the North Fork of Long Island and the personality of the wine follows suit. This is not your typical Merlot, it's a bit more wild. Foot-crushed, whole-cluster organically grown grapes, spontaneously fermented to yield a beautiful, complex medium-bodied wine that reveals dark fruit and earthy bramble along with a kick of spice.
