Fermentation & Bottling Notes
The grapes were crushed and destemmed without sulfite additions and allowed to soak for 48 hours before being pressed. The juice underwent a mixed culture fermentation and was aged in stainless steel for 4 months. This lot was conditioned in kegs prior to being bottled by hand using counter-pressure bottle fillers to create a sediment free, spritzy experience.
On the nose this wine is so full of bright red fruit and honey aromas that it may fool you into thinking it's a sweet wine. It even tastes of watermelon jolly ranchers served on volcanic slate--fruity with a subtle touch of minerality. The acidity is strong enough to reign your experience back into balance and the effervescence helps to accentuate the crisp, dry finish.
This wine is a fun. Period. Drink it in the end-of-winter-I'm-sick-of-the-rain drizzle to help put a smile on your face or sip it when you're in that I'm-on-a-boat-in-the-sun-with-my-shades kind of mood and you feel like setting a new PR for happiness.
