Broc Cellars Nouveau
Regular price $25.00
Winemaker: Chris Brockway
Grape Varieties: Broc Harvest blend
This year’s Nouveau is a blend of everything brought into the winery and made (white, rosé and red) from our 2021 Harvest. We wanted to capture and highlight all the vineyards and varieties as an example of everything we make here at Broc. Having it together in one bottle is a fun way to remember it. After each pressing, we captured some juice from each lot into one stainless tank as a combination of free run and pressed juice. Our cellar team named the tank “Funky Juice” -- they put the fun in “Funky” this year and we were happy this wine turned out so delicious it was clearly meant to be our 2021 Nouveau.
At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents.
“Our goal in making wine is to bring out the natural expression of the grape. We decide on a wine by wine basis how we want to do that. We have more freedom now to make the choice not to add Sulphur. There is a bigger market for us to go in the direction we want to go. To counter that we are doing more to insure our vineyards are using the farming practices we support. We’re also committed to detailing exactly what decisions we make during the course of our winemaking process.” – Chris Brockway
