The grapes for this vintage were brought in and placed whole cluster for 10 days in concrete tank to ferment with its native yeasts. Foot stomped in the morning and pumped over in the evening. We gently pressed back into concrete and aged for 9 months. 100% concrete.
VITICULTURAL AREA: We love the fruit coming from Santa Ynez Vineyard. Despite the warm days there is a large diurnal shift at night to help keep the natural acidity and freshness of the grapes. Planted mostly on serpentine soils that are composed of loam/clay loam with varying amounts of chert. The vineyard farms consciously and in line with our natural winemaking philosophy – farming the vines organically but they are not certified. Spread the love with Broc Cellars KouKou!
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. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
