Secco Splendido Metodo Ancestrale 2016
Regular price $30.00
Metodo Ancestrale is the rural method of making sparkling wine. Sun kissed, ripe grapes are pressed and the juice fermented. As the juice ferments, the sugar is converted by yeast into alcohol and CO2. The winemaker waits until say, 90% of the sugar is consumed by yeast, then prepares and bottles the young wine. Fermentation re-ignites in spring and the CO2 is captured in the bottle as a delicate sparkle with a satin sheen. Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains off Vaughan’s vineyard Merricks North.
