2 bottles of Piquette - low alcohol wine bev from fave winemaker Mackenzie at Trail Estate in PEC. 1 orange, 1 rosé.
From Mackenzie Brisbois:
A deviation from minimal intervention. This is a new product for me: it's like wine, but it's just weird. I took the skins I pressed for our 2020 Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Muscat and Pinot Gris and poured water over them. As the alcohol was only 2.5% I needed to add sugar to increase the alcohol - called chaptalization. In theory, this is the opposite of minimal intervention.
I heard about it, I wanted to try it and so here it is. It's a light, wine-like thing tht reuses skins which we would normally discard.
'Yay' or 'Nay'? To Piquette or not? -Mackenzie
