The latest release of our most popular orange wine, unfortunately in shorter supply this year with vineyard yield down 50% from drought. This also contributes to this vintage being a slightly darker, almost red color, and a more intense savory notes.
Dolce and Sofia, our affable miniature Sicilian donkeys inspired this wine. Destemmed and left on the skins to start a native yeast fermentation, then after 5 days pressed to finish fermentation and aged in neutral French barrels. The 5 days of skin contact impart a copper hue, reminiscent of Italian Ramato. The taste is uniquely its own, landing somewhere between an orange wine and a rosé. Fun and fresh, with lingering savory notes. A wine as unique as our Dolce. Hee Haw!
