Irrévérence is a blend of Riesling from Butler’s Grant vineyard in 20 Mile Bench (35.4%), Chardonnay from Redfoot Vineyard in Lincoln Lakeshore (25.1%) and Gewürztraminer from Knizat vineyard in NOTL (39.5%).
The Chardonnay was fermented and aged in foudres; the Riesling in foudre and stainless steel. A portion of the Gewürztraminer was co-fermented with Riesling on their skins in qvevri for a total of 6 months, while the rest (carrying 30% noble rot) fermented to complete dryness in a foudre. The wines aged separately in their fermentation vessels on primary lees for 12 months, before being blended for an additional 12 months of aging in a combination of concrete and foudres.
The perfume floats out of the glass with freshness, purity and a dewy floral quality. The palate flows in unexpected ways - caressing yet unrelenting; lively, yet smooth.It's a gentle, tender wine, but full of invigorating energy nonetheless.
