Hipster Juice 2021
An obviously hip red, white and pink grape blend from down under. Tart and refreshing with loads of red berry notes and spices. Best enjoyed chilled... preferably with some savory snacks and a ray of sunshine.

Size: 750 mL
Grape: 40% Doradillo, 25% Zinfandel, 15% Cabernet Franc , 20% Red Sémillon (a natural mutation of Semillon that happened in Australian)
Region: South Australia, Australia
Vinification: Three red grapes and one weird white (Doradillo) were handpicked across a three-week period with “high flavor x bright acid” as the common equation. The Doradillo was picked first and fermented 1/3 whole-bunch and 1/3 whole-berry tipped atop 1/3 pressed juice. The Zinfandel came in next and fermented 100% whole-bunch in a 25hL open top fermenter for three weeks and pumped over frequently for maximum structure, then pressed to old puncheons. The Red Sémillon was fermented on skins for two weeks and then pressed to ceramic egg to finish its ultimate weirdness. The Seaview Cabernet Franc was the last to come in and was destemmed and left on skins for two days prior to being pressed and fermented in 700L French demi-muid, bringing the elegant side of this variety. The lots were blended and settled for one month before being bottled without fining or filtration and only a small dose of SO2 at bottling.
