Varietals: Apples, grape pomace of Milan Nestarec’s Welschriesling & Riesling
Farming: Organic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No added SO2
Bubbly and vinous! Summer apples, earthy notes, nice mouthfeel, smooth tannins, distinct fizz. Very fun to drink.
Fall 2019, the apples were pressed and then slowly fermented and matured in old oak barrels into dry still cider, for about 12 months in total. Then, in the fall of 2020, they spent 7 days in open-top vats macerating on the fresh grape pomace provided by Ivo’s (and our .) friend Milan Nestarec. Pressed and bottled with addition of freshly pressed apple juice to start the secondary fermentation in bottles. Unsulfured, unfined, unfiltered, undisgorged.
