Subject to Change Wine Co. Bunch of Herbs Vermouth Spritz Can (250 ml)
The base of this vermouth is our own Subject to Change wine with added organic herbs, spices and dried fruits. There is no sugar added. Here’s the breakdown:
Grapes: (2021) 62% Hillside Vineyard Zinfandel, 18% Rodnick Vineyard Grenache, 14% Muniz Vineyard Zinfandel/Merlot, (2020) 6% Ciapusci Zinfandel
Organic Botanicals: (Starwest Botanicals) Cinchona Bark, Gentian Root, Dried Orange Peel, Dried Lemon Peel, Cinnamon, Allspice, Madagascar Vanilla, Dried Lavender, Pink Peppercorn, Dried Ginger Root, Clove, Star Anise
How do we make it? We had a bunch of red wine from our 2021 vintage that did not go dry (mostly Zinfandel). This presented a great opportunity to create a naturally off-dry base wine for an aromatized wine. The natural sugar in the wine balanced out the bitterness of the botanicals. We macerated the botanicals in the wine for two weeks in a stainless steel tank. As always - native yeast fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulfur.
Our spritz can is simply our vermouth with sparkling water added, for an easy grab and go beverage. We’d suggest serving the canned spritz ice cold right out of the can or pouring over ice and adding a twist
