FABLE 055: The MILKMAID and her PAIL

As she walked home, a milkmaid balanced a pail of fresh milk on her head and started planning. She’d make butter to sell, buy eggs for hatching, and profit off her new flock of chickens. She’d purchase a new dress, get the attention of the young men in town … but as she turned her head in feigned disinterest, she dropped her pail, and all of her plans with it.

Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.

Production Notes
Usually, we experiment with this winemaking style at our sister wineries, but this year, we decided to venture into skin contact, also known as orange or amber wine, right here on our estate. We let a couple rows of block 14 fruit hang a few weeks longer to get a little notch more ripeness and we proceeded to crush the fruit upon arrival at the cellular door and macerate the wine on its skins for 5 days before pressing to add additional texture and nuance. Look for some cool flavors of chamomile, dried apricot, and stewed spiced apples as this wine evolves in your glass on the table. Start with it chilled but let it warm up and evolve as you enjoy it. Just 75 cases were made.
