2020 Still Life Orange 20L Keg
The fruit for this Still Life Wine was sourced from the Greenhough Vineyard in Hope, Nelson - BioGro certified organic #5119.
Hand harvested, the blend of 62% Gewürztraminer and 38% Pinot Gris was separately fermented on its skins in stainless steel for 3 weeks and 1 week respectively. Once wild fermented to dry, the two wines were pressed together into aged French oak barriques for 10 months maturation. From there, just 30 mg/L of SO2 was added a few weeks before kegging early March 2021. 13.3% alc/vol.
Stylistically this is a juicy, short-maceration orange wine. It's aromatic, textural and puckering, while remaining light and refreshing enough to enjoy as you would any white wine. A light rose gold/copper hue, bright florals, good length and body to boot, the tannins are delicate, fine and chalky.
Delivered in a 20L Wine Diamonds stainless steel keg with a D-type fitting (typical beer fitting). Please use Nitrogen to dispense this wine (CO2 will eventually carbonate the wine). Any queries on the best setup for these kegs please talk to Dan.
