Camuna Cellars, "City Glou", Chambourcin - 2022

New Jersey has a history of viticulture dating back to the 19th Century, and the Outer Coastal Plain AVA was home to the settlement of Vineland. This dry red is made of Chambourcin, with whole cluster fermentation and 50% carbonic maceration. Light-bodied, fresh, and fruit-forward, this will be best with a chill. Pair with New Jersey tomato pie.

Staff Pick Notes

Wines from New Jersey? Absolutely! Established in 2006, The Outer Coastal Plain American Viticultural Area (AVA) covers over two million acres in Southeastern NJ.  It’s here that winemaker Eli Silins plies his trade. The City Glou is 100% Chambourcin, a French-American hybrid with uncertain parentage made up of several North American species. Aromas of grape bubbleyum and funky high-toned fruit greet us on the nose, and a laser-focused palate of raspberry sorbet and zingy acidity refresh completely, with notes of tamarind and balsamic on the high energy finish. It was even better the next day and loves a chill. Camuna wines seek to explore the question “How can humans be active partners in creation in a way that honors the natural world and the divine?" Divine indeed! Pair with a Taylor ham and cheese on rye.

Glossary

Chambourcin

A dark-berried French hybrid, popular in the Loire in the 1970s. The deeply colored, aromatic wine it produces is far better than that of most hybrids. It has largely been abandoned in France, and today most plantings of Chambourcin can be found on Australia's east coast.
