Analysis: 13.5% alcohol / volume

“The grapes are whole cluster pressed, chilled and racked clean to a refrigerated stainless steel tank to accentuate the crisp, zesty qualities and retain its distinctive freshness. A select yeast is used to start a long, slow, and cool fermentation to enhance fruit esters. The finished wine continues to age in stainless steel and is stored cold to retain bright aromatics, crisp acidity and fresh character.” – Craftwork Winery

These conditions bring out tropical fruit flavors with notes of mineral edginess.
