Kindeli - Verano Rosé (2019)
This is a complete picture of Alex’s vineyard. He uses every variety grown on his vineyard, co-fermenting in three lots and then blending. It is made from Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. There was some stem inclusion, some direct press, some skin contact. Ageing and fermentation were almost entirely in stainless steel. As usual, the wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without sulphur.
