Grape Republic Dela Fresca Frizzante 2020
Grape Republic Dela Fresca is a sparkling white wine from Japan. Smells like a fancy fruit shop in Tokyo! We'll sum it up as a peach and cloudy apple bomb with a little fizz. Crunchy, tart and so fresh on the dry palate as it leans more towards a yuzu citrus and pineapple flavour profile.
100% Delaware. Made exclusively from fruit in Grape Republic's vineyard in Nanyo, Yamagata. All the grapes are dry-farmed and none of the vineyards are irrigated. The clay and limestone soil vineyards are uncertified organic and biodynamic.
Manual harvesting of the grapes. Some of the grapes are crushed and left on skins for a 12 hour maceration wile the rest is directly pressed into tank. When the wine has fermented to 12g/L residual sugar, the wine is bottled, resulting in a classic petillant naturel. No fining or filtering.
