Ka'u Red Caturra Champagne Natural
Harvested from farms at 1500-1700ft in the Ka'u district of Hawaii Island this red Caturra lot we processed using our Champagne Natural method. Whole cherries are fermented with wine yeasts underwater which bubbles during fermentation. Even the fruit of the cherries have a sparkling, effervescent quality and a crisp acidity like a sparkling wine. This is due to the Yeasts producing CO2 as a by product during fermentation. From this experience we decided to name this process 'Champagne Natural'.
Tasting Notes: Pink Guava, Grape, Almond
