Piquette is an old world technique of creating a fizzy drink that was favored by farm laborers as a plentiful, affordable, and low alcohol beverage to enjoy at lunch; in other words, a classic day-drinker. In their "piquette-inspired" sparkling wine, Ridge of Wonders used the pomace (pulp, skins & seeds) from their first pressing of Gewürztraminer and rehydrated them in water, where they sat for 11 days on their skins, getting stirred every day. The pomace was then pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks until dry. Before bottling, they added finished wine of Grüner Veltliner to add flavor, acidity and stability, and then bottled it with a propagated saccharomyces yeast for secondary fermentation in the bottle. The result is an aromatic sparkler with an 8.4.% ABV, perfect for sunny weather, brunch on the patio, and all other leisurely pursuits.
