2021 SPON Plum & Malbec is a blend of two-year-old 100% spontaneously fermented beer refermented with Texas-grown Bruce plums and Malbec Rosé grape juice from California. The wort was simply brewed with well water, Texas malted barley and raw wheat, and aged hops from our barn. It was chilled overnight in our coolship and 100% spontaneously fermented with native yeast. It slowly matured in oak barrels for two years prior to blending, fruit refermentation, and natural conditioning. The blend was selected from our 2019 coolship season (season no. 7). The Bruce plums are a Japanese varietal.
We get notes of boysenberry, sandalwood, chokecherry, tart plum, fig, limestone, floral funk, woodsy hops, and earthy yeast.
