PAST WINES

2015 FORKS & KNIVES (WHITE)

This wine is made exclusively from Neuburger, a crossing of Sylvaner and Roter Veltliner. 2014 was a colder year which yielded grapes with higher acid and lower potential alcohol. Neuburger can be a little round and plump in warm years, so it actually benefitted from the cool temperatures. The juice sat with the skins for 48 hours before being pressed off into stainless steel where it fermented and then aged for a year. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered without sulphur and just a hint of fizz. 12% ABV

2015 FORKS & KNIVES (RED)

Pinot Noir is Milan’s grape of choice for this gastronomic cuvée. The wine was fermented in open top vats but without punching down. The goal here was to preserve some of the CO2 while it matured in stainless steel. This led to a healthy dose of reduction. The wine was eventually bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small amount of prickly CO2 and no added sulphur. 12% ABV
