Wonderwerk Free Your Mind

Wonderwerk Free Your Mind

750ml - 12.0% ABV — Los Angeles, California, USA

Grapes: 50% Carignan, 50% Riesling

production: 1980 cases


Carignan was picked at 21.3* Brix on August 15. The fruit enjoyed a couple of weeks longer hang time and cooler temperatures at harvest than last vintage. Riesling was picked at 21.7* Brix on September 14. It was another cool growing season in the Arroyo Seco AVA (Riesling) with impressive acidity.

Riesling was de-stemmed and fermented on skins with twice daily pump—overs. At 1/2 Brix depletion, Riesling pump-overs were replaced with Carignan pump-overs (from another tank). Once the two cuvees were fully blended and fermented to dryness (14-day maceration), the lot was pressed to a stainless steel tank, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged on lees. This wine was produced without fining or filtration, with 20 ppm sulfur (KMBS) added at bottling.

Tasting notes:

Free Your Mind is an extraordinary chillable red; a co-fermentation of carbonic old vine Carignan and skin-fermented Riesling.
