First, you’ll notice the very delicate pink color of this wine, due to very limited maceration of the grape juices and skins. Then you’ll notice aromas of guava, lime, crisp cucumber, just a hint of cherry, and minerality. Taste and enjoy flavors of tart green apple and lemon curd with a clean profile that will pair nicely with fresh garden veggies and balance well with a bit of spice and piquant flavors.
We harvested these grapes at only 22 brix, on the low end of ripe, thus retaining excellent acidity and translating into a refreshing wine style suitable for summer. We produced this wine from 100% free run juice, meaning no pressure was applied by a press to extract the juice, which creates a softer wine profile with very little color and tannin. We fermented the juice cold in tank, which leads to a long and slow fermentation that retains crisp and clean fruit aromas and flavors.
