2020 Only Zuul
Cult 5th generation winemaker Joseph Swick worked in and around vineyards worldwide from 2003 and started operating under his own label in 2013. His wines are consistently sold out, so I am honoured to have a tiny selection of one of his wines.
Call it a rose or a light red, but this wine is orange through and through. It is made with Pinot Gris sourced from Oregon & Gewürztraminer grown in Washington. The juice is blended and fermented together on the skins for 30 days. It is steeped in juicy lychee, blood oranges, ripe peaches, & rose. The wine is bone-dry and hauntingly aromatic. No sulphur was added except for a tiny amount at bottling.
Minimal quantities & exclusive to Pulp Wine & Denmark.
- Area: United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley
