71 Cases produced
Grape: 100% gewurztraminer
Total sulfite: 45 ppm
Crushed and destemmed
1 day on skins
Stainless steel for 10 months
Unfined and unfiltered
Vineyard: Lamb's Quarters-Seneca Lake, west facing, gentle slope
Soil: Honeoye Silt Loam and Lansing Gravelly Loam over shale
NOTE: Orange skin and lychee, crisp and dry with very fine bubbles.
ELEVAGE: Grapes were crushed and destemmed into a one ton bin to
macerate for 24 hours before pressing. Settled juice was moved to stainless
steel where fermentation, including full malolactic, continued over about six
months. In August of 2022 the wine was racked, sugar was added and it was
bottled by hand without fining or filtration under crown cap. A second
fermentation occurred in the bottle producing a dry, sparkling wine. Bottles
were not disgorged.
MISCELLANEOUS:There is a bit of reduction that dissapates soon after opening.
Holds its bubbles well overnight and drinks well for days. Despite all
appearances this is not a pet-nat. The wine is fermented dry and given a small
sugar addition prior to bottling. A second fermentation happens in the bottle
and we sell it the following year as is, undisgorged.
