Purveyors of fine grape juice
2017 Domaine L'Escarpolette La Petite Pépée languedoc roussillon, france
$54

Domaine de l'Escarpolette is the domaine of Ivo Ferreira who produces stunning red and white wines in the Languedoc.
The La Petite Pépée is an interesting wine due to the winemaking technique used. The grape used is Grenache Noir, a red grape, but the wine is a white wine!
This technique relies on the fact that red grapes almost always have white juice except for a few cases called teinturier grapes where the flesh and the juice is red (Gamay de Bouze is an example). The colour of most red grapes is entirely in the skins. Therefore if you crush non-teinturier red grapes carefully and immediately remove the skins from the juice it will be clear. Living Wines
