2020 Sextant Skinbull

Julien has taken his skin contact wines one step further this year by releasing a sparkling skin contact wine made from the Aligoté grape variety.

The wonderful Aligoté is from a north-facing vineyard near the famous village of Pommard. The grapes (50% destemmed and 50% whole bunches) were crushed, and then, instead of the juice being runoff, it was left in contact with the skins for a ten-day period allowing the anthocyanins and other polyphenols in the skins and pips to leach into the juice.

It was bottled with residual sugar to allow the fermentation to continue to produce a nicely sparkling pet nat!
