What is  Nouveau?  (Direct form our Winemaker Terry)

During carbonic maceration, an anaerobic environment is created by pumping carbon dioxide into a sealed container filled with whole grape clusters. The carbon dioxide gas permeates through the grape skins and begins to stimulate fermentation at an intracellular level. The entire process takes place inside each single, intact berry. Ethanol is
produced as a by-product of this process but studies have shown that other unique chemical reactions take place that have a distinctive effect on the wine.
It's outrageous....
As a thank you for sharing in our excitement at the release, you may purchase the Nouveau that evening for $20 per bottle (limit 3).
It will officially go on sale the 16th for $25.

Can't make the dinner?  Call us on the 15th and we can ship it for you!
Remember that this wine is meant to be drank young!
 
Cheers from the 2012 Crew at Brandborg Winery!
