This is rosé perfection, a wine whose hue in the glass bespeaks its floral, filamented treasures – deeper strawberry red, a macerated wine from the grape Frontenac Gris. This wine is made by Deirdre Heekin and Caleb Barber of La Garagista, working with a couple hectares of vines in south-central Vermont.
Vinification: 100% Frontenac Gris, Lupo in Bocca (tr.: Wolf in the Mouth) hand-harvested from vines grown in clay and limestone soils. Spontaneous fermentation with only ambient yeasts (no temp. control) takes place over ~6 months before a short élevage. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no additional SO2. 12%ABV
