BRUTAL!!! 2020


Deep golden orange. Complex aromas of exotic fruits, apricot, honey glazed nuts, and kumquat marmalade. The palate shows more freshness and liveliness than the nose would lead you to believe. Layers of ripe fruit with chalk-like minerality and rampant acidity keep things vivid. plenty This is serious and structured, but also incredibly drinkable.

We love it with… 🍋🍤☀️

Vinification: The fruit was handpicked Stompie's palate looking for really bright acidity and structure. The fruit was whole-bunch fermented with light foot stomping to get the juice flowing and daily punchdowns for the first ten days of fermentation. There it stayed for two weeks on stems and skins under a blanket of CO2. It was then basket pressed into a single 16hL concrete egg for eight months on the gross lees. After aging it was racked directly to the bottling line and was bottled without fining, filtration or SO2.
