ABOUT: The wine is produced by Hunter’s Estate, one of the oldest and very best producers in the region. The family were pioneers along with Cloudy Bay. All sustainably farmed, estate fruit, the wines reflect an artisanal example of Marlborough. OCD is the wine that launched Communal Brands. Inspired by Melissa Saunders’ obsessive nature about wine.
VINIFICATION: Hand harvested off of a single block. 10 days on skins to enhance color, but with only 2-3 pumpovers to minimize tannin extraction and maintain a juicy, fresh style to the wine. Gravity drained into stainless steel to complete the first fermentation. Bottled with about 10g/l RS for the second fermentation in bottle. No SO2.
TASTING NOTES: Lush, Medium-Bodied, dry Sparkling Red Wine (Pet Nat). Opaque, dark Ruby w/ Garnet Rim. Aromas of Cherry, Blackberry, Thyme, & Coffee Beans follow to the palate, w/ additional notes of plump Purple Grapes, Wild Strawberry and tart Raspberry. Clean finish. A Pet Nat like no other!
