This allows for carbonic fermentation to occur, imparting unique and complex flavours without extracting any harsh phenolics from pressing or more traditional maceration on skins.
Wine is pulled from barrel after 9 months and bottled without any fining, filtration or sulfur added.
Cut grass, coriander seed, tropical fruits and jalapeño peppers. Funky aromas, punchy and full textured on entry with a beautiful spicy fresh finish.
