Donkey & Goat The Gallivanter
Jared and Tracey Brandt craft some of the finest natural wines in California. While they're definitely on the wild side they completely defy the notion that natural wines are mere "science experiments." The Brandt's use minimal sulfur, natural yeasts, allow long macerations, and bottle without fining or filtration, all of which takes tremendous attention and care in their winemaking practices. The Gallivanter red blend is a shockingly fresh and delicious wine without a trace of funk or gaminess. A blend of Merlot, Grenache and Mourvèdre it's all about juicy blackberries, bright raspberries, a little earthiness, and black pepper. Serve this slightly chilled at your next barbecue.
