Das Juice Maceration 2021
Das Juice is a sick little project from the boys behind local distro, LoFi Wines, who's portfolio reads like a Japanese record store - Rare things, pretty things, and all very good things.
The Maceration is an excellent toe-dip into the world of skin contact white wines. Great quality at a great price. Das ist gut.
Words from the makers:
A skin contact blend of Muscat, Arneis, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Grapes were all hand picked fermented separately on skins for 2-3 weeks, then pressed where a long slow natural ferment took place in tank. Finished with a small sulphur addition prior to bottling.
The tropics have arrived and with them the full spectrum of a generous fruit salad. Chalky texture sitting behind plenty of mineral drive.
