Most wine lovers recognize the name Michael Browne when it was synamous with Kosta Browne. Today we introduce you to his new project CHEV sparked by Michael’s love and appreciation for old school workmanship. From classic cars to vintage clocks, CHEV pays tribute to bygone days when artisans crafted in their forge and the raw was hand-wrought to expert precision. Just like the grapes—exquisitely grown by master farmers, curated from renowned sites, and refined to delicious detail in the family shop. Crafted in a style all its own, CHEV is unbounded by region, born from exceptional vineyards, near and far.
“AT THE END OF THE DAY, MY QUEST IS SIMPLE — TO CRAFT THE MOST DELICIOUS WINE POSSIBLE.”
Nose: Boysenberry and cherry with light pastry cobbler and gentle aromas of savory spice, aged black tea and vanilla bean.
Mouth: Black cherry and juicy red plum intertwined with fresh earth and faint tobacco leaf. A seductive broad texture with vibrant acidity and a silky soft mouthfeel, followed by a suede finish with an earthy characteristic and a balancing high tone. Well-rounded with subtle, finely integrated tannins.
Recommended Drinking Age: Three to five years after release although it will age gracefully over the next 10 years when properly cellared. Should you wish to enjoy sooner, we recommend decanting for two to three hours.
