Producer notes: "50% Pinot Gris, 23% Orange Muscat, 19% Semillon, 8% Gewurztraminer. Tasting each varietal each day, across the board, we pressed each varietal after 6 days of carbonic fermentation and let the wines finish fermenting in tank. The pun “Love You Bunches” refers to the gentle treatment of each grape bunch so we don’t rupture grapes. The grapes then ferment whole, when yeast penetrate through the grape skins to ferment within. The term “carbonic” describes fermentation occurring in a sealed tank. The yeast have digest all available oxygen, creating carbon dioxide within. The Pinot Gris and Orange Muscat co-ferment provides a reddish orange tint while the Gewurztraminer brings a pink peach tone. The Semillion adds a bright yellow tint to bring the final blend back to an orange hue. Pinot Gris lends savory rich layers while the Gewurztraminer brings ripe aromatic aromas and feathery mid-palate stuffing. The tropical Orange Muscat becomes integrated into the Gewurztraminer while the Semillion brings the finish of the wine to a high acid crunch. Over-all the wine shows firm, quenching citrus fruit with loads of mashable, mouth-filling tactile yumminess.
