Dancing Swallows 2014/15/16 “Base 3” Baco Noir

We think Baco is a seriously underappreciated wine. A hybrid with some North American genes, Baco is remarkably resilient in the vineyard, often shaking off weather that makes purely European grapes question crossing the ocean. The wine is robust and a bit rustic, and can make an amazing pairing with
lean, big flavoured meats like game.
In our first 3 years, our Baco block produced excellent wine, but in small amounts. When we combined them, the result was something special: a smooth, big-flavoured, rustic red.
