The first bottle of bubz from Lewandowski!! 100% skin-contact Muscat, from Lost Hills Ranch in the Yorkville Highlands, California. After aging for 1 year in old barrel, juice from the next vintage was added in bottle to create the second fermentation in bottle (aka the part where the bubbles come in). No SO2.
Notes on the vinification from the winemaker:
"I did a full skin maceration during the ferment which took 10 days or so, then pressed off the juice and aged it in barrels for a year. Then it was bottled with the next year’s incoming juice (liqueur de tirage) which added sweetness, yeast and a second fermentation while producing some very fine bubbles. Bottled and then disgorged in July. It’s funky in a pheromonal way (11.5% ABV). " (Evan Lewandowski via Edible San Francisco"
