Tinto Rosso 2016 – released in April 2017
A field blend of two red grape varieties that we grow in our vineyard: Grenache and Mataró. Fermented in a beeswax lined clay pot. No stirring, no additions whatsoever, no racking, no fining, no filtering, just peace and quiet, and occasional topping up of the barrel. Matured for eight months in an old French oak barrique. Here is a link to the winemaking flowchart. Alcohol level: 13°. Order Tinto Rosso 2016
Amber (orange) wine – a blend of unirrigated Semillon, Muscat Blanc plus a little bit of Muscat Rouge – where the Muscat portion was fermented on skins, with native yeasts. Following fermentation the two were blended straight into an old French oak barrique and matured there for 10 months. Full natural malolactic fermentation with no acidity adjustments. In some parts of the world this wine will fall in the category of “amber” wines – made from white grapes but with red winemaking techniques. Bottled without SO2, pure natural bliss! Order Ambrato 2016
Dry grown Grenache picked early at the right Baume and pH for a Rose. Barrel fermented with its native yeasts and bacteria, full malolactic. Matured on fine lees in an old French oak barrique (hence the name) for 8 months without racking. Bottled straight from the barrel. No fining, no filtering. Order Barrica Rose 2017
La Pastorella 2015 – SOLD OUT.
Dry grown Semillon with a touch of Muscat Blanc picked early to preserve the natural acidity, barrel fermented with its native yeasts and bacteria. Full malolactic. Matured on fine lees in an old French oak hogshead for 8 months. Racked only once, bottled straight from the barrel without fining nor filtering.
Crispy, refreshing, youthful!
Only 6 bottles left. Deep amber, an unusual co-ferment of Grenache and Muscat Blanc, fermented in clay pots, with a lot of skin contact, native yeasts and bacteria. Bled off the red and amber ferments after 24 hours (a process also known as salasso) – roughly 40/60 Grenache/Muscat. Matured in old oak for 8 months, racked once. Full malolactic. An unusual wine, can be called Rose or Amber, we think it’s in a league of its own. Crisp and aromatic. Alcohol 11.5%. Order Sangrato 2015
