From the producer: “A Nouveau is born! Nouveau is the name given to the first wine of the vintage. The style originated out of Beaujolais, just south of Burgundy, where they make wines from Gamay Noir using the technique carbonic maceration. Pioneering wine chemist and natural winemaker Jules Chauvet employed the technique in the mid 20th century to make light, fruity and delicious wines. This is essentially how we made this wine! Part of this blend is made up of old vine Valdiguié (also known as Napa Gamay) that underwent carbonic maceration; this was also the method for the Zinfandel. The Petite Sirah in this blend was a special lot where we performed “reverse saingée” to make a lighter style wine. The Sangiovese was added to tie it all together.”
