An efflorescent medley of orange blossom, apricot and citrus zest aromatics. Bright and refreshing with lively bubbles plunging into an apricot, neroli daydream. Dry as a bone (thug) in harmony with a delicately lingering salinity and the still glowing stone fruit aura enrapturing your perceptions.
This is DANG! The electric alliance of Ardure Wines and Pét Nat Posse centered on a mutual adoration and exaltation of the magnificent Muscat Canelli grape.
An early September harvest from Luchsinger Vineyard in Lake County, California with ten days spent lounging on skins and a subsequent three week chill out in tank before being captured in its final form with a small amount of residual sugar to finish fermentation. Bottle conditioned for nine months. Unfined, unfiltered, and undisgorged.
Jason Ruppert's background started as a sommelier running successful wine programs in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco, California.
Jason farms both his Chardonnay from Marin county and Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley naturally with no sprays of copper or sulphur. Both sites are in the process of regenerative farming methods, working with specific cover crops to help nourish and protect the soil. The wines are vinified in the most natural of ways with their healthy, native yeasts, basket pressing and letting all wines go through malolactic fermentation on their own and using little to no sulphur right before bottling. He also uses different crystals during primary fermentation to add in extra energetic vibrancy to the finished product. Ardure translates to "the heat of passion" in olde French.
