Tasting Notes: The Cailleteau is modelled after the Beaujolais Nouveau wines of France which are bottled shortly after a whole-berry fermentation and released later in the Fall.  The fermentation method and lack of ageing make for a unique, youthful expression of the Gamay grape with aromas and flavours of candied fruit and nuts, Kirsch brandy and light spices. Enjoy this wine in its youth. 
Drink now.
