100% Pinot Noir Pet Nat Col Fondo from the Niagara Escarpment, New York, USA. Organic & Biodynamic practicing, Unfined, Unfiltered, Suitable for Vegans, No Added Sulfites.
ABOUT: Think of this spritzy Col Fondo red wine like cold-climate New York's answer to Lambrusco.
"Col Fondo" Definition: In contrast to the more familiar, filtered Prosecco, there is less sweetness in Col Fondo. And, unlike Champagne, there is no disgorgement. The resulting wine is cloudy and has a funky, even sour nose and flavor, with yeasty sediment settling on the bottom of the bottle. A few even have a pleasantly bitter, lingering aftertaste. Col Fondo Prosecco wines are frizzante rather than spumante, so slightly less fizzy as well.
VINIFICATION: 2020 - Pinot Noir Our wines are dry, unfined, unfiltered, and with no sulfites added. Just foot crushed grapes, settled in old wood where it underwent maceration for 2 months before being aged for 5 months in Stainless Steel tanks to ferment, after which it was bottled by hand at the proper time. Hand-harvested, whole cluster fermented, w/ 2 months of maceration, after which spontaneous fermentation occurred in Stainless Steel with indigenous yeasts. Aging & Second Fermentation: Col Fondo
TASTING NOTES: A punchy, Zesty Sparkling Red, full of Sour Pink fruit and a raw, unfiltered texture. Intense and tart, this is a palate cleansing, gluggable offering fit for the hottest of days. Super juicy, with notes of Wild Berries, Wildflowers and dusky summer eves.
FOOD PAIRING: Pair this wine with Burgers, Fried Fish or Chicken; it will also pair especially well with Salmon, Tuna, Sushi, Mussels in Red Sauce, Pastas, Cured/Deli Meats, Pizza, and Cheese.
