Varietal: Dolcetto & Chardonnay
Winemaking: Minimal intervention, maximum care.
"Crushed and destemmed at Sam Miranda's, by Sam Miranda, a colossal unit of a human. He legitimately has hands the size of one of the moons of Jupiter. High-fiving him would be like slapping a billboard or something. Massive. Anyway, the grapes were pressed very lightly as soon as possible to reduce any chance of smoke carry-over and then yeast hulls were added to further drop out any unwanted smoke flavours. It was then chilled and transported to the winery in Melbourne for wild ferment and bottled with 16 grams of residual sugar per litre. Hand disgorged, topped, re-capped, cleaned, labeled and boxed for your drinking pleasure. 13.5%. 9400 bottles produced."
Nose: Strawberry, sour cherry, watermelon
Palate: A touch of sweetness = juicy red fruit with some cream and lemon zest
Our Notes: Drink this when the sun comes out. It's fresher than hitting waist height in the ocean!
Music Pairing: Spacey Jane - Good for you
