Single Barrel Release. Spontaneously fermented. Aged in collaboration with Escarpment Labs cofounders: Angus Ross and Richard Priess. We picked the Dolgos from Angus' personal tree, and aged this apple wine on dregs from Richard's experimental Sidra. Intense fruit aromas, textural and bright. Just gorgeous.
Soma is a zero/zero Pét Nat apple wine. We cryoconcentrated the juice for Soma by letting if freeze outside during the winter of 2017. We then let the juice spontaneously ferment outside as spring temperatures rose and bottled it early to allow fermentation to finish in the bottle. Super fresh aroma with light funk. Restrained tannin, huge mouthfeel and fresh acidity. Nothing added, nothing removed. For best results, refrigerate upright and do not agitate prior to opening. The carbonation is lively. Sediment is normal.
A Beer/Cider Hybrid When blending, we often find ourselves thinking about the drinkability of Saison. Stage Whisper is an attempt to close the gap between the worlds of Cider, Saison and Wine. This bottle is a blend of Perry aged on Riesling skins, Cider aged on Gamay skins, and two farmhouse ales, barrel fermented with kviek and brettanomyces by our friends at Bar Hop. We blended these four things together and aged them for another two weeks on foraged crabapples before bottle conditioning.
