In many respects, contemplating, guiding and witnessing

transformation constitutes the very essence of winemaking. We

have settled upon grapes as the agency of fermentation as they

seem to yield the most prismatic spectrum of flavors - animal,

vegetable and mineral, among the available fruits. Ferment an

apricot, and one obtains apricot-flavored wine. Ditto strawberries, and blueberries and plums, etc. Apples can sneak in a few

unexpected treats, though they pale in comparison to vitis

vinifera. Fementation of highly aromatic malvasia bianca grapes

presents the opportunity to mimic the perfumer’s alchemical art,

opening the doors of perception to the gentlest effects of olfactory psychedelia. What if we are then to referment our already

kaleidoscopic malvasia bianca with more of the same juice, this

time under pressure, and ignite the fifth dimension of umamireleasing lees, and unleash it on the palate with the bubbly

buoyance of effervescence? Sunlight becomes bud becomes

shoot becomes flower becomes grape becomes jasmine

becomes apricot becomes lychee becomes citrus pith becomes

うま味. Serve sufficiently chilled, and gently turn the bottle

upside-down for 20 seconds to resuspend the lees. Amazeballs
