Winemaker Notes: 50% Pinot Gris, 23% Orange Muscat, 19% Semilon, 8% Gewurztraminer
As we’ve expanded our carbonic So Fresh brand to include deeper hues of red, we began to think about the other direction on the rainbow, how could we make an interesting, delicious wine a lighter hue than Love You Bunches Carbonic Sangiovese? The obvious answer was a carbonic orange wine that would combine the fresh purity of Love You Bunches with the titillating textures of a fleshy orange wine. Tasting each varietal every day, across the board, we pressed each varietal after 6 days of carbonic fermentation and let the wines finish fermenting in tank. The pun “Love You Bunches” refers to the gentle treatment of each grape bunch so we don’t rupture grapes. The grapes then ferment whole, when yeast penetrate through the grape skins to ferment within. The term “carbonic” describes fermentation occurring in a sealed tank. The yeast have digest all available oxygen, creating carbon dioxide within.
