Unbridled yet soft, with more of a frizzante style bubble profile this vintage. Evocative of the sweet and luscious qualities of mandarin and clementine. Yeasty aromatics give way to notes of citrus, not unlike your favorite mimosa. The lees in contact for fermentation emphasize the slightly tart backbone of this wine and provide a slight kiss of provocative bitterness.
After a 3-hour maceration on the skins, wine was pressed and slowly fermented in tank before bottling.
Made from all estate-grown, Demeter certified biodynamic grapes.
