From the vineyard to your table. Tucked away on Halifax’s historic waterfront, Bishop’s Cellar has been providing world class wines to Nova Scotians since 2003.
This organic Italian red is from Fattoria Fibbiano in the Pisa Hills of Tuscany. Manually harvested and then fermented in stainless steel for 10 days utilizing only the natural yeasts on the grapes. The wine is then aged in cement tanks for four months, where it goes through malolactic fermentation, then 12 months in Slavonian oak and finally four months in bottle. The result is a magnificent full red; intense red fruit aromatics and strong cherry, raspberry and blackberry on the palate. Partnered with a slight salinity from the marine-rich soil, the smooth tannins provide a solid structure for the clean and otherwise very fresh fruit forward wine. The finish is persistent and keeps you wanting more. Now the only trick is to learn how to pronounce the grape! (hint: chee-lee ‘eh JOH-loh)Read more about Martha
