KOUKOU Cab Franc – the name seemed so fitting for this style of Cabernet Franc they enjoy making. Fresh, light, chillable and easy to drink. The grapes were brought in and placed whole cluster in concrete tank. Foot stomped in the morning and pumped over in the evening. They gently pressed back into concrete and aged for 10 months.
They love the fruit coming from this new vineyard they are working with. Despite the warm days there is a large diurnal shift at night to help keep the natural acidity and freshness of the grapes. Planted mostly on serpentine soils that are composed of loam/clay loam with varying amounts of chert. The vineyard farms consciously and in line with their natural winemaking philosophy. They do not use any synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Spread the love with their KouKou!
At Broc Cellars, all of their wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means they only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. They don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. They add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
