Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Grenache, and Nebbiolo harvested August 26, September 9, 10, and 17 of 2021, respectively. With each, a gentle, slow, whole-cluster press as for Champagne was used, taking only the taille portion to stainless tank. All spontaneous fermentations. After fermentations complete, wine racked, chilled, and sulfited in February, 2022. Bottled March 13, 2022.
A half-sibling to both the Firefly and Whoa Jake! pet-nats (same harvest, different press cut and vinting). The wine is named after Charlie, though that’s not a picture of her on the label.
