Winona x 3/4 Uppercut - 2018 Winona Fucking Wine
EFF YEAH! Introducing our wine collab with Andy Buchan of 3/4 Uppercut (and Analogue). WFW may be an eyesore – rife with rotten teeth, leathery skin, terrible tats and a corkscrew in his skull (thanks Frank in Denmark for the artwork) – but he's a prince on the inside. Dolcetto (80%) and Arneis (20%) from the King Valley's Symphonia vineyard saw three days skin contact, before being pressed off and wild fermented together, then aged for seven months in old French oak and bottled with zero sulphur.
It's alllll the f-words – fun, fruity, frisky, flirty and a little funky. He smells of wild forest fruits, with a slither of earth and smoke. Generous and yielding, the palate is full of alpine strawberries, a puff of peppery spice and loitering blueberries. Fine threads of undulating acidity from the Arneis dance to Dolcetto’s softer round tones. Chill and chill, or don't chill and chill. Either way, get on it. Just 20 cases made, exclusively for Winona!
