Forlorn Hope Heinzelmann Sparkling Picpoul
|Availability:||In stock (12)|
"From the limestone soil of Rorick Heritage Vineyard comes the new goblin king, Heinzelmann. Methode Traditionelle Picpoul, three years sous tirage, zero dosage. Scintillating, with focus, precision, and cut -- but still hell bent on mischief.
Picpoul was planted in the limestone soils of Rorick Heritage Vineyard in 2007. The depth, texture and complexity of this variety from the site continues to reveal itself.
The Picpoul at Rorick Heritage Vineyard is among the last fruit to be picked every year; we typically see sugars reach our sparkling target level of ~19º Brix at the beginning of October. The fruit was hand picked and whole cluster pressed; primary fermentation was undertaken in neutral 227L barrique. The base wine went to bottle en tirage in June 2017 and was disgorged at the end of July 2019 with zero dosage."
