Description

Medium orangey-copper in appearance with some sediment showing the unfined, unfiltered natural approach to the wine. The nose is complex and intense with an exotic mix of orange zest, lemon, earl grey tea leaves, quince, baked golden apple, honey, apricot, peach and baking spices. The palate is dry and quite full bodied with a light phenolic, zesty grip, racy mineral acidity and lots of baked apple, lime, tea leaf, peach, lemon and mandarin orange with a long finish.

Vintage & Production:

Pied de Cuve are Little Farm's natural wines. these are wines that receive almost no intervention from start to finish and are therefore a pure reflection of the place, the grape and the vintage. Pied de Cuve is a technique to start a fermentation using only the yeasts that are naturally occurring on the skin of the grapes. The 2018 vintage was a slightly cooler year with a long growing season giving excellent phenolic maturity and lots of flavour intensity from the low yields of under 2.5 tons per acre. The small clusters of Riesling grapes were foot trodden and left to ferment naturally on the skins for around two weeks before gentle pressing and then finishing their fermentation and spending another 9 months ageing on the lees in stainless steel. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered in September 2019.
