Les Filles des Fêtes 'Garden Party', North Fork of Long Island, New York 2020
Leslie heads all liquid innovation & production at Matchbook Distilling Co., and is a good friend of ours. We are so excited to be featuring her first go at winemaking, and she has nailed it! Leslie embodies a more a hands off approach, just as she does with her spirits. The Les Filles label is an ode to the the dinner party & days spent outdoors. Garden Party is a bright, fresh, highly drinkable wine clocking in at 11% alcohol. This is the North Fork's answer to Beaujolais.
The Pinot Noir and Merlot for Garden Party is sourced from Macari Vineyards, who use as little intervention as possible in the vineyards, implementing biodynamic practices. After fermentation, the wine spent 7 months in used barrel with regular topping up. The wine was bottled from barrel. No fining, no filtration, no added sulfur. One Barrel produced.
