Grapes picked at night, Wine Lover’s delight.. Introducing NEW Limited Release Eclipse NOCTURNAL.
A new Eclipse is here. But just like the real thing, this rare phenomenon can only be experienced for a short time.
Following in the footsteps of the incredibly popular Eclipse FORZA (2015) and Eclipse BRAVADO (2016), Just Fine Wine & Winexpert are pleased to announce NOCTURNAL from Languedoc, France. NOCTURNAL is a classic blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault, with an unusual moonlit twist. The grapes were plucked from the vines in the cool of the night when sugar levels are more stable and acid levels are better. This results in a wine with richer flavour and aromatics. NOCTURNAL has a captivating palate of plum, black raspberry and woodsmoke and the wine kit also includes grape skins for added depth and flavour.
Winexpert has secured a limited supply of juice for this amazing French blend. Like the FORZA and BRAVADO before it, once it's gone, it's gone.
NOCTURNAL can be ordered now at Just Fine Wine and will be available in-store beginning July 12th and until quantities run out. Ready in 8 weeks, this wine kit will produce approximately 23L of finished wine (roughly thirty 750ml bottles) and is priced at $219 On-Premise or $170 Kit-Only. Contact us to secure yours today!
Eclipse NOCTURNAL - Languedoc, France
THE REGION: LANGUEDOC, FRANCE. Blends reign supreme in Languedoc, a large coastal wine region in the south of France which stretches from the Rhône valley in the east to the Spanish border in the south west. A wide variety of grapes grow well in the exquisite Mediterranean climate and fertile soil.
THE WINE: NOCTURNAL is a classic blend with an unusual moonlit twist. The grapes were plucked from the vines in the cool of the night when sugar levels are more stable and acid levels are better. This results in a wine with richer flavour and aromatics. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault deliver complex spicy aromas with fruity plum and black raspberry on the palate, balanced with earthy woodsmoke. The full body and lush tannins make the finish just long enough to savour all the nuances in this gorgeous wine.
FOOD PAIRING: Try gourmet burgers to complement the smoky flavours in the wine or serve with a Cassoulet to match the Nocturnal’s southern France origins. A well-marbled cut of red meat makes for a more upscale pairing, but don’t forget the candlelight.
