Hollow Wines "Leo Carrillo" Grape Raspberry Wine 2021
Co-ferments are all the rage right now, so why not take it a step further and co-ferment with other fruit. And, thus, this co-fermented orange wine, "Leo Carrillo", was born. Sourced from dry-farmed, minimal intervention vineyards, this has a nose like kirschwasser but the brightness and grip brought on by seven days of skin contact.
"Trousseau Gris grapes were organically farmed by Siletto Family Vineyard in Tres Pinos, CA. After being destemmed several hundred pounds of raspberries from a nearby farm in Watsonville were added to the fermenters after being hand sorted. Both the grapes and raspberries were co-fermented together for 7 days before being pressed into neutral oak barrels where they completed primary and secondary fermentation. Bottled with 20 ppm SO2 addition on February 18th, 2022."
