2020 Maenad Wine Co. Piquette
Maenads, the female followers of Dionysus were known for their “wild” behaviour, defying the expected role of women. This creation follows their muse: crafty, non-conformist, interesting and wildly delicious.
Not actually a wine, this beverage is made by adding water and a small amount of sugar to freshly pressed Sauvignon Blanc grape skins. Grape skins are full of aroma and flavour compounds, and this Piquette truly shows it. From female winemaker Yvonne Irvine, this Piquette was fermented with wild yeasts and bottled just as fermentation was ending to create a light spritz. A zesty nose full of grapefruit and orange with fresh herbal notes. At only 5.5%, this Piquette is extremely crushable, and drinks very much like a refreshing, crafty beer.
Unfiltered and bottled with lees. No Sulphites added.
2019 Salcheto Rosso di Montepulciano
Located in the south of Beaujolais, Jean-Baptiste runs his family estates and vineyards with a level of care and thought for the lands only matched by the attention to detail in the winemaking. Ripe and vibrant on the nose, with raspberry, bubblegum and cola notes mixing with some underbrush and earth. The palate is juicy and mouthfilling, but balanced by lively acidity. The red fruits are sweet and sour, but there are earthy, mushroom notes as well. Glou-Glou” means “glug glug" which is both a motto for this wine and a call to action. Serve lightly chilled and don't overthink the pairings here.
