Populis Collective Wabi Sabi Red
Grapes: Carignan, Syrah, Zinfandel
The Populis Collective make natural wines from plots of old vines in Northern California. All vines are farmed without herbicides or pesticides, and this is followed up with a low intervention approach in the cellar, so no filtration, sulphur or other additions.
The Wabi Sabi red is an unusual blend of Carignan, Syrah and Zinfandel from Mendocino County. It's light, lifted and fragrant with violet and rose aromas backed up by crunchy red fruit and touches of undergrowth and tobacco.
