Clementine Carter Clariette Beauty 2019
Each year. winemaker Sonja Magdevski of Casa Dumetz / Clementine Carter, creates a new 50/50 wine cider combination to highlight the bounty of Santa Barbara Wine Country. The 2019 vintage marks her 6th vinous-cider project. Clairette Beauty is 50% Clairette Blanche from Martian Ranch and 50% apple cider from Bear Creek Ranch in Aptos. Fermented in stainless steel and old oak barrels, this cider was hand bottled in April 2020 for secondary fermentation. The cloudiness is a
result of no disgorging to keep all the goods inside and the wine triple fresh. To clarify, simply position the bottle upright in the refrigerator for a day or so to chill and boom! (Not necessary for complete enjoyment - It is still delicious!)
If you are adventurous and looking for a special treat try this refreshing hybrid! Pairs well with shellfish, seafood, fresh salads or enjoy it all by itself.
