I wanted to make something light and approachable which tells a really good story. This is all about that Beaujolais influence for me; it’s a young, crisp, bright red blend. You can serve it slightly chilled and drink it on its own or it’s a perfect picnic wine.
We fermented each grape variety separately in different vessels: wooden open top fermenters, a qvevri, concrete eggs! We hand sorted the grape bins to take leaves out and we were incredibly gentle with the fruit. It took a long time, but it was worth it.
Our FUBAR is fresh and super crushable!
