Vue des Blues - Basel Cellars Estate Winery
Our distinctive 2018 Vue des Blues represents the “new world” and “old world” in style. Most of the wine was crafted in the conventional way, where grapes were pressed, and juice fermented in stainless steel, then finished and aged in neutral French barriques. This particular style represents a brighter, leaner wine with great acidity. About 28% of the wine fermented naturally on the skins and stems and aged in neutral oak for 9 months, and holds more structure, tannin, and roundness. These two different lots were blended together prior to bottling to create the perfect balance for the final Vue des Blues blend.
