Ultraviolet "Adventurous Jammy Red"
The Wine: A glou-glou, carbonic maceration red! This Zweigelt/Riesling blend smells like wild mountain berries mixed with candied cherries. It has an amazing feeling in your mouth with tiny kombucha-like bubbles, reminiscent of Pop Rock candy from the '90s. This wine is balanced in all the right ways. It is juicy yet tannic, floral and fruity, with hints of pink peppercorn.
The Winemaker: Neon Eon is the brainchild of Canadian Tyler Thrussell, up in Summerland, British Columbia. His experimental attitude leads to some incredibly unique and funky wines. He is fully committed to making "alive wine," and farms with organic and biodynamic practices, zero additives in the cellar - his wine is unfiltered and unrefined.
