Winestyr Review

This is what I want to be drinking under the Sevilla stars while listening to a traveling string quartet serenate the plaza with songs of times passed. Make sure you give this wine a chill, to bring out those potpurri and laser focused violet aromas. Bright, bing cherry, cranberry, and sea breeze. The wine has a lovely, prickly texture.

What We Love

  • Lesser known varietal
  • Expert winemaking

Serve this chilled with grilled oysters on a rooftop overlooking Lake Michigan...or something like that

Experience

Since 2008, Ferdinand proprietor and winemaker, Evan Frazier, has had the opportunity to work for the Kongsgaard family. With their encouragement and support, he started Ferdinand in 2010. Though his first experience in winemaking was in France, it was in the Cathar and Catalan country, just across the Pyrenees from Spain, so the grapes he worked with were Grenache and Carignan. Setting out to make his own wines, he looked again towards Spain and was fortunate to be introduced to two great growers of Spanish varieties. In Ferdinand's first vintage, Evan started with just one ton of Albariño from Markus Bokisch’s Vista Luna Vineyard. In 2011, he began to make Tempranillo with fruit from Ann Kraemer’s famed Shake Ridge Ranch. Evan is a rising star in the wine world and we're excited to offer his wines to you.
