2023 Valdiguie Nouveau
A harvest and holiday favorite. Pristine Valdiguié from Rancho Chimiles is macerated carbonically for ~7 days then foot treaded, pressed, and allowed to finish fermentation in barrel.
It is fruity and bright with great weight and texture. There is some banana and bubble gum, but the core fruit is fresh strawberry and raspberry. A throwback to a time when Valdiguié was planted predominantly for a Nouveau style wine.
