Irish Peat Wine is a unique wine which has been matured with Irish Peat. Brendan & Trisha source the grapes from the Rheinhessen & Pfalz regions in Germany to ensure consistency and quality of grape and mature it with Irish Peat which they source locally in West Limerick Ireland.
Maturation of the wine, similar to the oaking process, ensures the wines have ample time to settle and develop a complex palate and this results in an inviting ruby red colour with the Pinot Noir. On the nose, there is the comforting aroma of Peat and on the palate it is rich and rounded yet retains its lightness which is characteristic of classic Pinot Noir. The Pinot Blanc offers a different experience with strong earthy notes on the nose and on the initial taste, however the Peat mellows as you continue to enjoy your first and second glass of Irish Peated Pinot Blanc.
Both are excellent wines and offer a completely new and unique tasting experience.
