Utopia, Play U Lalala Apple-Grape Wine

Write a Review

Vintage: NV

Varietals: Apples, grape pomace of Milan Nestarec’s Welschriesling, Riesling and Cabernet Franc

Farming: Organic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No added SO2

Light pink color, good fizz inviting to another sip. Pretty nose slightly reminiscent of skin-contact wines, very tasty mouth of forest strawberries, cherries, nice acidity and texture – very entertaining!

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.
