'An eminently drinkable, ultra-fresh red from Émeline Calvez and Sébastien Bobinet of the newly-renamed Calvez-Bobinet, a beloved 8th generation natural winery in Saumur. Piak! brings a real Comic Sans energy to the low-profile Loire grape Grolleau, disparaged in the past but like QR codes in 2020, is back with a vengeance and something to prove! Parched throats, beware – this light, juicy & slightly spicy red is coming for you! The grapes were split into two tanks – destemmed in one, whole bunches in the other – and fermented for 10 days, then blended and aged for another few months before bottling without fining or filtration.
Tastes like mulberries and blackcurrant jelly, cherry pit, blackberry seed and crabapple with a sprig of mint, a crack of white pepper and hardly any tannins. So dang refreshing! -Grape Witches
