Wonderwerk Free Your Body Orange Wine 2021
"Orange wine! In 2021, we dialed up the acidity and captured more texture this year as Free Your Body took a float down the Sacramento River and unlocked a new level in the Wonderwerk portfolio: the Clarksburg AVA.
This corner of California exudes a vibe unlike any other part of the state, with rich alluvial soils, drawbridges, old country stores, and riverboat zoomers. The delta breeze provides a cooling effect to temper the warm summer days, creating the diurnal temperature shift that is critical to produce high-quality wine grapes.
Here we found a chalky Chenin blanc to lay the structural foundation, mellowing the loud fruit tones of Sauvignon blanc and harmonizing with the elegance of Pinot Gris. After a 21 day maceration (26 days for the Pinot), the grape skins were exhausted and the body was free to begin a new life as wine.”
