Folias de Baco (Uivo) - Aqua Nat 2021 5.5% ABV
(Douro, Portugal) - 75cl, 5.5% ABV
A very unique 'zero-waste' beverage made from the remainder of grape skins/pulp after pressing for normal wine, with added water + freshly pressed grape juice to cause a re-fermentation. It then leads to a very low ABV beverage, a super fresh and super light wine that is a delight to drink as an aperitif, an afternoon tipple, or anytime really.
This particular one is made from a field blend of 20+ varieties of local red and white grapes. It was bottled immediately so the fermentation happened in bottle to produce a very gentle fizz. This is not quite 'sparkling', it's more a light spritz that adds a wonderful bit of freshness to this absolute smasher.
