750 mL bottle. Hazy pale orange. Smells of white wine, oak, some grain. Tastes pretty tart right up front. Kinda grapefruit tartness. White wine. Oak. As it warms, the back end becomes a little more grainy and yeasty. A touch of brett. Medium light. Low carbonation. Got much better as it warmed. Maybe not as good as the individual components, though.

On site pour at Hill Farmstead. 750ml poured into two wine goblets.

Copper, clear, active carbonation bubbling up into foamy white head. Head settles into thin whispy collar and a few floating islands. Lacing hangs in wide swoops on the glass.

Aroma is citrus zest, juice, white wine grape and must. Bit of sweet tartness and hint of grass.

Flavor is tart, zingy, citrus zest, wine grape juice and white wine skin. Has an underlying earthiness and noticeable oak from the barrel. Excellent balanced flavors.

Moderate carbonation and medium bodied.

A great blend, full of rich layers of flavor. I am really happy they released some for retail.
