From the producer:
A Piquette of 100% Sauv Blanc from Niagara Lincoln lakeshore area, the pressed grapes from a 2-ton harvest were taken by pickup truck to Steel Town Ciders facilities in Dundas where they were macerated with water for 4 weeks in stainless steel tanks, during this time a slow fermentation continued and pump-overs once daily. Nearing the end of the maceration I chaptalized the must kicking off a Vigorous fermentation, transferred the wine to temperature-controlled pressurized bright tank for immediate bottling under counter pressure. Unfiltered, no added sulphites, no fining agents, 5,5% alc. bright aromas of lemon passion fruit and kombucha. Bone dry on the pallet with crisp medium-high effervescent fizz. Perfect wine style natural seltzer.
