Brutes - Dr. Rieslingstein’s Monster
Dr Rieslingstein’s Monster — A collaboration with our good friend Pomologik, this sparkling fruit wine is made from oak-aged Gravenstein cider (2018) macerated under flor yeast for 4 months with Riesling skins from Wine Mechanics and Japanese Flowering Quince from Märsö Gård. Blended with a fresh mix of Ingrid Marie and Kaiser Wilhelm apples from Skåne before bottling.
Prominent riesling seed and skin flavor, a little lactic followed by ripe and slightly bitter apple notes. The Japanese Flowering Quince adds some laser focused acidity and a discreet taste of licorice. Super crisp, very wine-like and quite addictive.
