Blackberries Shine Like Stars | 6.3% | 750 ml
In morning dew, rising from night's dark canvas, these wine-dark skins refract and gleam, these blackberries shine like stars.
Process & tasting notes:
Blackberries Shine Like Stars is an aged saison with a bone-dry Lambrusco character, and notes of fresh berries, violets, and bitter almond on the finish.
We sourced these organic blackberries from our friend Blackberry Bob of Thimbleberry Farms in Beamsville, Ontario. His farm is a regular stop during our summer visits to wine country as we check in on the fruit and interpret the auguries of the weather and harvest ahead.
Blackberries Shine Like Stars was brewed in late February and early March of 2021 with rye, coriander and grains of paradise, and then rested in Niagara wine barrels for 15 months. The barrel-aged saison was then refermented on whole blackberries for three months and conditioned in bottle.
Enjoy Blackberries Shine Like Stars in the company of friends and family, in laughter and stillness.
Serving suggestions: Decant off the lees into white wine glass.
