Hedgehog Piquette

Varietal:

Crafted with Trousseau and Nero d’Avola skins

Alcohol:

7%

Vinification Notes:

In 2021 we kicked off harvest earlier than expected, so by the time our first fruits arrived at the winery in late July, we were still waiting on compost bins to take away our pomace. With a big pile of grape skins and stems threatening to turn the winery into a fruit fly’s dream home, we knew it was time to repurpose like the ancient Romans and produce a piquette.

Tasting Notes:

This deep bramble piquette has a heartier grip than the rest—reminiscent of foraging for berries deep in the forest. Feels like trips to the general store up at the lake, diving off decks, and the late summer transition into fall.
