Swick - Only Zuul (2020)

50% Pinot Gris 50% Gewürztraminer 

Vinification Method: The two vineyards are hand harvested on the same day and fermented separately with the grapes destemmed. The wine is foot tread and macerated on the skins for about 30 days in 228 liter used wooden barrels before pressing. The wine spends about 6 months in elevage and is bottled with a small addition of sulfur.

Joe Swick's philosophy: to make our wines as naked and raw as we possibly can while having them be fun and delicious. We work with organically farmed vineyards in the colder regions of Oregon and Washington State.  We love wines with acid and freshness.  We make the wine that we love to drink.  No conventional additives. Just grapes and (sometimes) a very small amount of SO2 to keep the wine stable in bottle.  Wine is a fermented beverage that should not be a trophy or a status symbol.  Wines made in this fashion are artisanal products that reflect their artist and terroir with no maquillage.
