A beautifully light offering from a third-gen Italian winery. This frizzante sees three days of skin-contact giving it it's illustrious hue, but not too much that it masks the minerality. Bone-dry, bracing acidity, crunchy cranberry cocktail and wild cherries. Ham? Turkey? Charcoots? Piria to the rescue.
Crunchy Rôastie Rainbow

Fermentation: Native, Carbonic, Whole-Cluster, Coferment
Appellation: Ballard Canyon
Region, Country: California, USA

Syrah picked at peak crunchiness. A play on “Cote Rotie”, referring to the Viognier coferment, Crunchy Rôastie is Stolpman’s Syrah-based entry into his So Fresh series of bright carbonic wines.
Violets, muddy strawberries and deep purple plums. Punchy and feathery all at once. A beautiful enigma of a wine.
