What the hell is Piquette??

 

Technically not a wine as it's not fermented grapes, Piquette is made from the byproduct of the winemaking process. Water is added to all the leftover good bits (skins, stems, seeds, you name it - it's all going in) known as grape pomace, then left to ferment with whatever sugars are left over.

 

This technique isn't some new hip thing - in fact, it's old as hell! The process yields a drink that's a little wild, low ABV, fizzy and next-level easy drinking. 

 

So for this one they used grape pomace from all over the place, fermented it with some water and also some fresh juice from an Alvarinho press to act as the natural 'sugar' for fermentation. It was bottled immediately so the fermentation took place in the bottle to give it a very gentle fizz. 

 

Swap the wine glass for a tumbler and serve it straight from the fridge. It won't last long!

 

Organic, minimal intervention, no added sulphur, unfined and unfiltered, 100% vegan/veggie friendly.
