A ripe, juicy wine that sings of strawberries bursting on a hot summer's day by the beach. There is a slight salinity & stone fruit flavours & a lot of character. Enjoy slightly chilled.
The Chardonnay and Pinotage were co-fermented in the “reverse saignée” method: ½ of the fruit was added to a fermenter as uncrushed whole clusters, and the other half was direct-pressed juice that was pressed into those clusters and pumped over daily. This was left on the skins for nine days when pressed and aged in 7,000L neutral oak foudre.
The foot-trod Merlot was destemmed. After one week with no cap management, the wine was pressed to the tank, then barreled down for seven months in 225L neutral oak. The two components aged six months before racking and blending together in the bottling tank. As always, bottled unfined, unfiltered with no addition of SO2.
***The 2021 FKA! was released with four different colour labels. The juice inside each bottle is the same!
