Style: Rose Wine
Age of Vines: 40 years
Varietals: Blaufrankisch, Pinot Noir, and some white varieties
Pairings: Salmon & vegetables en papillon or any other preparation would be a delightful pairing OR in a more casual manner with cheddar cheese crackers doing house chores!
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in large barrels with indigenous yeast and no racking. Christian made just one 3000 liter barrel of this wine. It is bottled without sulfur.
Birdscape is made with what Christian calls “Pink Maceration,” a very light extraction with just a small amount of contact with the skins, to result in a very dark rosé, or perhaps a very light red wine.
