Ibi Wines - Vita Méthode Ancestrollé (2020)

Vita is Blaufränkish and Zweigelt spontaneously fermented separately, then co-fermented in bottle with a little apple juice for tight bubbles.

Both were direct pressed, but we added Blaufränkish skins back to the juice right after pressing.

Tannins aren't over the top, but firmly present. The acid is soft and serene, with a gentle sparkle to pull it all together. Drink now or cellar on its' side.

Ingredients: Grapes, apples.

11% ABV | 750mL

Gluten free.

Revel Cider & ibi wines started in 2014 as a solo passion project. Imagine our excitement when it turned out that, hey, lots of folks are fermentation enthusiasts!

By 2021, our team was seven people strong — with over 1000 cases of Revel cans and bottles shipped to discerning drinkers every month.

Our characterful native yeast fermentations explore the endless flavours Ontario has to offer. Combining farm-grown and foraged fruits, discovering what the fermentation process yields, and aiming to bring out the best of each ingredient is what makes us excited to come to work every day. (Well, that, and all the incredible smells.)

What's it like? Vita is quite a trip: funky, fruity and floral. The aroma starts with rose stems, fruit tea and blue plums. The first sip is a dynamic combo of pepper, leather and sweet cherry. It finishes with barnyard whiffs and heirloom tomatoes.
