strawberry pop rocks / funhouse entrance / dreams do come true
As is the tradition for this style of wine we did a 100% whole-cluster carbonic maceration on the grapes as soon as we'd sorted them. This means putting the whole grape bunches in a carbon dioxide environment so that they undergo an enzymatic fermentation (as apposed to the typical alcoholic fermentation). This technique unlocks all sorts of wonderfully play-full favours such as strawberry sorbet, grape-y bubblegum, pink starburst gummy and raspberry tart! It creates a ‘juicey-ness' in the wine which sets the mood for it's early release as a super-fun and festive jovial wine that marks the end of the wine harvest and the beginning of the new vintage.
