About Las Jaras Glou Glou
From the winery: Las Jaras Glou Glou is the kind of light red that tastes like sparkles and bright, summer fruit. It has enough acid to stand up to your favorite pasta and tomato sauce, with intense berry notes that can perfectly complement a smoky, tangy BLT. Serve slightly chilled—this is the most refreshing red wine ever, and the perfect antidote to long evenings at home. Most of the grapes underwent carbonic maceration, the classic fermentation method of the Beaujolais, which means that fermentation happened inside of berries themselves, causing them to explode in happy, boozy ecstasy. That’s how you’ll feel when you drink this wine—it dances in your mouth. It is great, you will love it.
To make this wine we assembled 29 small lots that had been vinified separately using various fermentation techniques to make a layered cohesive blend. Most of the lots were fermented with carbonic maceration, a
gentle process that helps to keep early-harvest wines from becoming too tannic. After 5-9 days, depending on the lot, we pressed the juice off its skins where they fermented natively in the tank. Then, to keep the wine bright and fresh, half of the lots were aged in barrels, and half were aged in stainless steel tanks. This wine received no additions except for a small amount of sulfur and it was filtered prior to bottling. We do not degas our wines, so it may have a bit of spritz, especially when young.
