2016 Freudian Sip


Winemaking Notes:

 The fruits for this immensely popular blend were harvested from separate blocks in the fall of 2016.  Each variety of grape were crushed  and de-stemmed separately and were individually allowed 2-3 hours to sit on the skins with a selected enzyme to help extract the aromatic compounds found in the skins of the grapes.   From there, they were sent to the bladder press for a slow, low-pressure squeeze.  Each variety of must was then transferred to stainless steel tanks to ferment separately.

A combination of  5 different yeast were used on the different tanks of grape must to enhance the natural fruitiness of the individual grape varieties. Fermentation temperature ranged from 12-18 degrees allowing the wine to slowly ferment and bring forward a full range of fruity aromas and flavors.

After alcoholic fermentation was complete, the wines were chilled to -2 for cold stabilization, and treated with a bentonite fining to provide heat stability.   The wine was then left in stainless steel vessels to age and mature.   The final blending process started in December, which allowed the different wines time to harmonize and settle before bottling on February 1st 2017.

Tasting Notes:

An immensely popular wine with intense aromas of green apple, citrus zest, petrol and tropical fruits that meld with the concentrated flavors of lemon rind, peach and red apples on the palate.  The off-dry finish is balanced with mouth-watering acidity, creating an all around consumer friendly, approachable wine.
