Colston Biblio - "CB001" (2018)

COLOR: Becomes a very vibrant & transparent ruby in the glass. Almost luminescent.

NOSE: Grapefruit, Strawberry, Hibiscus and Raspberry Tea.

PALETTE: Fine tannin and lifted acidity give elegant texture. 

This is Colston Biblio's first release. The wine is a co-ferment of super riper (i.e. purple almost red pinot gris) and Pinot Blanc. On skins for the full fermentation, which lasted two weeks, and ending up with a fresh ruby color. It did go through malo, so even though it looks bright and fresh, it also has texture and is still super floral. A bit of wine without category, but something I think is really unique and fun.

A 20 year career in the restaurant industry has shaped Matty Colston into a unique voice in the national Food & Beverage community. His experience has weaved its way into his love for many things beyond the calls of a traditional sommelier.

With the release of his Biblio brand he aims to portray these facets in a way that highlights a soulful thread of expression by the way he collaborates with wine growers, artisans, authors, and even musicians. CB001 is his first wine and the first release of a future catalog that will create form and artistic expression through a love for curating and taste-making available to everyone.

Red apple skin, cranberry, pomegranate, subtle spices.
