Sarabande PIG Wines Orange Swine 2021
This wine was fermented in two batches. The first was made from slightly pressed Roussanne grapes. We chose August 28. I kept the skins and added the lees of the pressed Roussanne juice. It began to ferment overnight and was pressed after macerating for two days. The freshly squeezed wine was then fermented in barrels at 22 degrees C for 13 days. The grapes were crushed in a 10 HL fermenter and left to ferment naturally and at hot temperature for 8 days. It was then pressed and combined with the Roussanne lot. A little bentonite was added to stabilize the proteins before the wine was filtered and prepared for bottling
