    Maenads, the female followers of Dionysus were known for their “wild” behaviour, this Sauvignon Blanc Piquette follows their muse: crafty, non-conformist, interesting and wildly delicious. Not actually a wine, Piquette is made by adding water and a small amount of sugar to freshly pressed Sauvignon Blanc grape skins. Fermented with wild yeasts and bottled just as fermentation was ending to create a light spritz, it is bursting with a zesty nose full of grapefruit and orange with fresh herbal notes. At only 5.5%, this Piquette is extremely crushable, and drinks very much like a refreshing, crafty beer.
