Maenad Wine Co. 2020 Piquette
Not actually a wine, this beverage is made by adding water and a small amount of sugar to freshly pressed Sauvignon Blanc grape skins. Grape skins are full of aroma and flavour compounds, and this Piquette truly shows it. Allowed to ferment with wild yeasts and bottled just as fermentation was ending to create a light spritz. A zesty nose full of grapefruit and orange with fresh herbal notes. At only 5.5%, this Piquette is extremely crushable, and drinks very much like a refreshing, crafty beer.
Unfiltered and bottled with lees. No Sulphites added.
