Fossil & Fawn Piquette, Oregon 2021
Owners and winemakers, Jim Fischer and Jenny Mosbache, found that the kind of wines they like, and thus the wines they make, follow a natural approach to winemaking that allows the vineyard to do the talking. Piquette is a blend of whole cluster Pinot and Chardonnay, fermented carbonically, mixed with the pomace of Riesling and Gewürtraminer for some extra acid and aromas. The result is an easy drinking, dry sparkler, clocking in at 7% alc. basically adult fruit punch! You need this.
Grapes: 70% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay, 5% Riesling, 5% Gewürztraminer
