A very light and low-in-alcohol red piquette – think of it like the second steeping of tea – lighter but with many of the same flavors. Cherry seltzer with quaffable bubbles.
Made by rehydrating the grape pomace (solids off of which the wine is pressed including skins and often stems) re-extract sugar, flavor and texture. Blended into stainless steel after separate fermentations, added back an unfermented merlot and zinfandel rosé to the blend and canned for conditioning fermentation. Unfined & unfiltered.
