Neptune, 2020

Shipped and sold by Rosewood Estates Winery

2020 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL

Why Neptune? Aptly named after the Roman god of the sea. After the juice spends its light in terracotta pots for 18 months a notoriously rich and distinct saline character emerges.

The 2020 Neptune was harvest from our home estate, Renaceau Vineyard. The grapes were gently pressed as whole cluster and settled in stainless steel before being transferred to neutral French oak for fermentation. The wine spent 21 months of maturation in oak before bottling. Wild fermented, unfined and unfiltered.
