Benjamin Bridge Piquette Sparkling 250 ml can
This product is currently sold out.
Piquette is the name of a low-alcohol wine beverage made from the
second pressings of grape pomace, known to have been enjoyed by French
farmhands and vineyard workers.
In recent years, the style has enjoyed a grassroots renaissance due in part
to its unprecedented ability to connect genuine artisan practices with a
surprisingly attractive price previously out of reach for small boutique
wineries. The true beauty of Piquette is that it unites low-intervention
craftsmanship and affordability by relying on the highly sustainable act of
Paying homage to the history of Piquette as an easy-drinking wine to
quench the thirst of agricultural workers, our own take and twist on
the style has been made with the objective to reinvigorate. For optimal
refreshment, we reached out to our friends at the Annapolis Salt Company
to add a pinch of hand made salt flakes from the Bay of Fundy.
Finally, to make our Piquette extra succulent, we finished it with a delicate
touch of organic Citra hops and packed an energizing jolt of fizz to create
the zestiest wine refresher. Since grape skins are essential to the process,
we selected varieties with highly aromatic compounds within their skins,
such as Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat. For the 2020 harvest, we are
targetting the highly perfumed Chardonnay Musque and Ortega to also
enter the mix.
“In the glass, a hazy golden colour with emerald reflections.
On the nose, a cascade of freshly squeezed ruby grapefruit and
lime zest is interlaced with suggestions of blooming lavender
tree. On the palate, a myriad of lively citrus notes is brightened
by, creating the most refreshing balance between hints of zesty
lime and a delicate touch of maritime salt “
