History can inspire and inform the present. What happens when you allow a wine to be made using only techniques from the past?

This project is the ultimate expression of hand-crafted. Using traditional methods we hand-picked, hand-sorted, hand-plunged, hand-pressed in an antique wooden basket press, hand-bottled and hand-labelled. There is a lot to be learned when you decide to put a little skin in the game. With the immaculate fruit that came off the vine in the 2020 vintage, Flat Rock was able to take a little liberties with their flagship white varietals, Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With 30 days on the skins, this aromatic, spicy skin-fermented white was a trial that will be repeated over and over again.

Flat Rock’s fresh take on an ancient style of wine. NOT BLUE, also known as orange wine, was hand-crafted in every sense of the word. Hand-picked & hand-sorted Riesling and Gewürztraminer grapes and fermented them in an antique wooden basket press. The hand-plunged & hand-pressed to produce a wildly aromatic and esoteric charmer. On the nose there are notes of orange, tangerine and poached pear, complimented by fresh ginger and winter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The palate is phenolic and textural with bright acidity serving as the backbone of the wine. Food-friendly and fabulous!
