Brendan Tracey, Capitalisme 2019
We love Brendan's wines with his Pour Une Poignée de Bouteilles being a firm favourite of ours for some time. Capitalisme is a 50/50 Pinot Noir and Cabernet Franc blend and is one for the sour beer lovers. The juice is light, tangy and zesty, with a hint of forest floor thrown into the mix. The grapes are hand-picked and naturally vinified via spontaneous fermentation of direct press and carbonic maceration, then blended after one month in vats and left to age in bottle. 100% Natural.
Brendan Tracey half-French, half-American winemaker, who in a previous life was lead singer in San Franciscan punk band The Insults, and who grows none of his own grapes, instead relying on a network of like-minded growers near his home in the Loire Valley’s northern reaches. Brendan has an uncanny skill in producing wines of esoteric drinkability that are an unfailing match for a sunny day spent outside.
