R.O’NEILL LATTA | 2020
Alonso Vineyard, Agua Dulce, California
This lightly sparkling grenache piquette was made from the skins of grenache grapes passed over cider. Picked on October 4, 2020, the grenache was fermented dry in a stainless steel tank. A Champenoise method was then used with presently fermenting cider and local honey to keep a bit of gas in the piquette upon bottling. The juice was then disgorged to release some of the energy and sediment from the wine bottles. The result is a textural but light pink sparkling beverage with low alcohol and refreshing aromatics.
