Old World Winery ‘Early Harvest’ Abouriou

$26.00

SKU: LDRW87 Category:

Region: Russian River Valley
Grapes: Abouriou (Basque)
Winemaking: Organic, biodynamic, dry-farmed, regenerative, composted mulch farming
Food airing: Roast chicken, braised meat tacos, molé, herby cheese spread

Description: This is a pretty awesome fact: this sparkling red is made using an old method called ‘col fundo’ (literally translated as ‘with the bottom’ meaning they include the lees and sediment to aid in the fermentation process). First they barrel age the base wine and in the next year they add fresh juice that will then cause a second fermentation to make a sparkling wine. The sparkling occurs naturally in every bottle from trapped CO2 from the second fermentation and every bottle acts as its own fermentation tank! This wine is in the style of a DRY lambrusco with flavors of strawberry and rhubarb and a pleasantly tart finish! Looking for a red wine that you can drink for breakfast? We thought so. And we’ve found it!
