About: A party in a bag from our favourite wine making couple Andrew & Emma Neilson of Du Grappin. The pair responsible for pioneering the #bagnum movement!
Their Skin Contact Aligoté was by far one of the most popular wines of last summer so it made sense to bag as much as we could for 2021's impending summer of love! This special edition blend was made especially for us and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Fruit from an extraordinary vineyard of “Perelles le Haut” in Mâcon La Roche-Vineuse, Burgundy where 80-year-old+ vines produce very small yields of beautiful orange-tinged berries.
The bunches were de-stemmed and placed in a stainless steel tank for a seven day maceration with the wine gaining a creamy, grippy palate and letting floral and saline notes develop. Pressed to old barrels for a native fermentation and left on gross lies for fourteen months.
This is then expertly blended with some direct press to achieve the perfect balance of those “skinsy” characteristics we all love and ultimate freshness and drinkability.
Stable in your fridge for up to 2 weeks after opening (trust us, it won’t last that long!)
