Best Alternative Style of Show: 2014 Eva Frizzante
Picked early to achieve a high level of natural acidity and fresh vibrant aromatics, pressed off under inert gas with fermentation arrested at 7%, bottled with a slight spritz to seal in the freshness. Possibly the best one yet! Release date: Late September 2014.
