A rouge sparkling!

Every year we thin the fruit on the vines right after veraison to balance the foliage with the fruit.  That fruit is then dropped on the ground and wasted.  In 2015 we waited about a week after the Pinot went thru veraison and then collected that fruit at about 17.7 brix instead of wasting it. It was then punched down thru fermentation till dry (10.2% alcohol).  It now has a rouge color darker than a rosé.  It is very tasty, high in acid as sparklings need to be.

Next week that (base) wine will be going to Randy at Harvest Moon Winery, where he will fine, sterile filter and cold stabilize it.  It will then go into the bottle for aging, back at our winery.  One job someone has to do is taste that aging wine occasionally, and that falls on us (one of the hard parts of our job!).

The wine then goes back to Harvest Moon for disgorging and bottling.

We now need to design a Label.  If you have any ideas let us know.  Be part of the label design process.

More to come.  We'll keep you posted of the progess.
