2021 Carbonic Syrah
To create the freshest, chillable red wine possible, we used Carbonic Maceration which lets the wine ferment whole cluster untouched in a sealed tank. After 7-12 days we press the grape clusters to tanks and neutral barrel. That's it. No manipulation or additions of any kind.
The result is an incredibly bright, fresh and zippy wine with a light ruby, amethyst color. It's completely dry yet delightfully fruity, with aromas of watermelon jolly rancher and flavors of fresh ripe strawberries. Be warned: The first sip literally makes your mouth water - it's the most crushable bottle of wine we have ever consumed! Serve Chilled.
