The Bourbon barrel-aged varieties of wine (Zinfandel and Red Blend) are made using Federalist’s unique American wine-making process, where the wines are aged in the barrels for six long months, to give them the thick flavour and character that they deserve. The Zinfandel barrel aged wines are made using many grape varieties such as Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Merlot. After fermentation, they are kept for ageing in oak barrels for 6 months and bourbon barrels for another 6 months.
In the case of the Bourbon Barrel-Aged Red Blend wines, grape varieties such as Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon are used for extracting the juice. After fermentation, these wines are aged for 15 months in 35% new oak barrels.
