Donkey & Goat Twinkle Mouvedre
Regular price $32.00
Winemaker: Jared & Tracey Brandt
Appellation: El Dorado, California
Grape Varieties: Mourvedre
This vintage is a beautiful rendition of a darker Rosé wine. Twinkle made its debut in 2015, after a particularly light bodied Mourvèdre inspired its creation. 2020 is just as nervy and lively as the past five vintages. This wine has become a must-have by the pool and — as many of Tracey’s North Carolina friends like to say — the go-to “porch pounder”. We always recommend drinking this beautiful wine at a chilled, white wine temperature.
Tasting Note: Aromatics and flavor profile are juicy, juicy, juicy for another crisp and refreshing vintage of Twinkle. A pretty nose of crushed strawberries and raspberries laced with a sweet and spicy fringe of cola. This is a darker Rosé wine that leads with flavor profiles of an unsweetened Agua de Jamaica (hibiscus tea), strawberries, watermelon rind, and a touch of underripe cherry. We can’t wait to pair this wine with PIZZA!!! topped with a creamy white sauce, spicy sausage, caramelized onions and mushrooms….or choose your own toppings!
Donkey & Goat was founded in 2004 on ecological principles driving decisions in both the vineyard and the cellar which was quite a few years before the term Natural Wine was coined in America! Known for being pioneers and one of the first to list ingredients on the label, our wines are handcrafted at our Berkeley winery from organic and biodynamically farmed vineyards in the Sierra Nevada, Mendocino County, and Napa Valley. We follow the same ethos in making the wines resulting in wine that are vibrant and alive and best enjoyed around a table full of food and circled with family and friends.
