Las Jaras Wines 2019 Glou Glou Red, Mendocino Co, California, USA
Vinification: 29 small lots that had been vinified separately using various fermentation techniques to make a layered cohesive blend. Most of the lots were fermented with carbonic maceration, a gentle process that helps to keep early-harvest wines from becoming too tannic. After 5-9 days, depending on the lot, juice is pressed off its skins and fermented natively in the tank. on Then, to keep the wine bright and fresh, half of the lots were aged in barrels and half were aged in stainless steel tank. This wine received no additions except for a small amount of sulfur and it was filtered prior to bottling. Wines are not degassed, so it may have a bit of spritz, especially when young.
Varities: 54% Zinfandel, 37% Carignan, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Pinot Noir, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
