Gentle Folk Vin De Sofa 2021
Candidate for my house wine of the year!
So glugable and with the perfect measure of sophistication to complete this super satisfying drop - not to mention the price tag!!
Its a delicious lip smacking spicy vibrant little number that is ready to go and will keep you going through those balmy spring evenings.
Winemaking notes: The varieties were fermented separately and blended together after five months of aging. In terms of specific details, the Sangiovese was destemmed and macerated for three weeks before pressing and elevage in stainless steel. The Pinot Noir was 100% whole bunch fermented, pressed after ten days, and aged in a mixture of stainless steel and 225L barriques. The Merlot and Syrah were macerated as 20% whole bunch for two weeks before being pressed into 500L puncheons. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2021 with a small addition of sulphur.
