THE VISIONS OF GIDEON COLLECTION: “JUNGLE FEVER” 2019
52% Marquette & 48% La Crescent. The fruit was handpicked from the Ellison Estate Vineyard in October 2019. Both varietals underwent whole-cluster semi-carbonic fermentation before being foot crushed. They were both fermented and aged in demijohn. In the late winter/early spring of 2020 the varietals were blended and organic maple syrup was added to the still base wine of the blended Marquette and La Crescent to start a second alcoholic fermentation. The wine was bottled to finish under cap as a traditional method sparkling wine. Native yeast fermentation. No sulfur additions, fining, filtering, or funny business in the winery, just fucking fermented juice.
