Bundoran Blue 2018
The 2018 Bundoran Blue is named as a tribute to the Bundoran Farm community where Pippin Hill resides while also paying homage to the signature, and ever-soothing, color palette of our sister event company, Easton Events. And despite the “blue” on the label, it is our signature, and ever-soothing, red blend. Rich up front with plum, blackberry and traces of cocoa, the body remains grippy which emphasizes the leathery notes with hints of pistachio. The refined finesse of the finish highlights the acidity while lingering sweet tobacco notes make this one of our best food wines. Let it breathe, breathe deeply yourself, then sit back and enjoy.
