Ruth Lewandowski 2015 Feints
So drastically different from other wines. On the nose, its peppery raspberries and forest-ey meaty aromas. The palate is equally intriguing. It’s lively, with fresh acidity, and an ever so slight presence of tannin. A very light red. A really deeply hued rosé. The wine is a “Feint” in every way, not at all what one would expect. Some would consider it too light to be a “red” wine. Others would say that it is too dark to be a “rosé.” As long as I was co-fermenting four varieties that don't normally mingle in the same tank, I figured I might as well employ a full carbonic maceration as well. Fermented and aged naturally (without the 'help' of cultured yeast, bacteria, yeast nutrient, fining agents, filtration, or sulfur) in egg-shaped tank.
