Ale Aged in Oak with Syrah Grapes of Carbonic Maceration
Refermented with the must from hand-pressed Syrah, that of which underwent a carbonic maceration over a fortnight. A sparkling effervescence is utilized to showcase a befuddling bouquet of strawberry, honey, and watermelon notes that sit alongside a moderate funk and crisp tannic structure. Enjoy cold.
**This will be the first bottle released in a series of 5!!!!
Each year, we are blessed with opportunities to work directly with San Diego growers & wine-makers to procure local grapes. In less than 3 hours from harvest, our grapes are processed and introduced to a meticulously constructed blend of young & old mixed-fermentation ales from our oak-aging program. A short maceration (20 - 30 days) allows refermentation and color-extraction to occur, producing a blurring vision of where beer and wine co-exist.
In the 2019 vintage, we were able to bring in whole-cluster Syrah (Campo Creek), Malbec (Emerald Creek), and Cabernet Sauvignon (from both vineyards). A large blend was designed to macerate all 5 varieties, thus creating a perspective of singular expression and shared influence.
