2021 Carbonic Blanc de Blanc | Verdelho
Continuing our exploration with verdelho, we took the carbonic macerated, hand-picked, single vineyard Wilyabrup verdelho experiment a step further in 2021….. Adding bubbles, lots of bubbles!
So all the techniques we used in the 2020 Carbonic Blanc verdelho we did here too, although the carbonic maceration went for only three weeks this time. Once bottled we used a wonderfully simple Spagni Ribagas contraption to carbonate each bottle by hand. It’s like SodaStream on steroids, making a delicious Prosecco style fizz that’s tangy and textural with tropical fruits and salivating citrus characters. Keeping it vibrant, fresh and kooki and oh so much fun for summer! Bottled over three sessions, it was a labour of love, finishing on 9 November 2021.
