Chambourcin is a grape of unknown origin that
has been widely planted in France, the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States
and to a lesser extent in Australia. Here in New Jersey, this variety has found
ideal conditions to produce an enticing medium to full bodied red wine. Our
Chambourcin is a good example of this grape's potential in our New Jersey
vineyards. It exhibits dark plum and dark cherry nuances in the perfumed aroma
and rich flavors. Aging in small oak barrels gives this wine attractive
overtones of mocha, vanilla and roasted nuts. Serve with full flavored dishes;
we especially like it with grilled beef or roasted lamb.
