2020 IAPETUS – TRIBUTARY (750ML)
ORIGIN | Shelburne, Vermont
Tributary is a Piquette. Piquette is a time-honored, centuries-old beverage traditionally enjoyed by farmhands and vineyard workers. Made by adding water to grape pomace, piquette is lower-alchohol and thirst-quenching.
On the nose, Tributary is incredibly juicy and floral, abounding with rose petals and macerated strawberries, underpinned by an earthy note of warm sun on stones. The body is light, bright, and 100% beach-ready.
Over 400 Million years ago, the ancient Iapetus Ocean covered present-day Lake Champlain. Since then, powerful geologic forces have shaped the landscape we’ve come to work and understand as winegrowers. Our grapes grow amidst the history of these ancient influences, but we also recognize the equally subtle impact our own hearts and hands have in raising wine. Iapetus represents a strong sense of place rooted in respect for the land, while honoring minimalism in the winery.
Tributaries form an intricate network of waterways that run into a major body of water like Lake Champlain. At the confluence of water and wine, our Tributary is a refreshing, low alcohol stream of wine for you. Go with the flow.
