Broc Cellars White Zinfandel

$44.70

Broc Cellars, started by Chris Brockway, proves that you don’t need to rely on the crutches of modern technology to  make beautiful wines. Don’t get me wrong, he’s happy to use science along the way, but instead of manipulating he uses  his knowledge to guide the wine along. This means organic grapes harvested at the exact right time; indigenous yeast  populations for fermentation; no sugar nor acid nor colour nor artificial flavor nor enzymes nor diammonium phosphate  added; no new oak is used; the wine is not fined nor filtered; less than half the sulphur of a normal wine is used. The results speak for themselves. 

“Grapes for this project come from two sources. Firstly, Arrowhead Mountain Vineyard provides organic Zinfandel (75%) from 20-year-old vines planted on volcanic rock in Sonoma. The second component, Trousseau Gris (25%), comes from Fanucchi-Wood Road Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. The Zinfandel this whole-cluster crushed by foot before an eight-hour maceration. It is then pressed into stainless steel for fermentation. The Trousseau Gris was fermented and macerated on skin for six months in sandstone jars before being pressed off. The wines were blended and racked before bottling, unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur. Only 400 cases were produced. 12% ABV” – Erik Mercier, Juice Imports
