A single barrel of aged Gold macerated with the skins of Emma and Abel Gibson’s Ruggabellus muscat-heavy wine, Sallio. A nourishing wine representative of the living soils and old-vine stock these grapes are picked from, we have aimed to respect their level of care in this ale. Extraordinarily kept for extended elevage after maceration.

We get flinty mineral aromas alongside mild green apple, bright lemon citrus and light floral notes with a big woody/herbal spice element, a marriage of skins and oak. A gentle palate, French cider vibes with apple and pear, dried citrus and marmalade. Standout phenolics, present and cleansing, showing an apple skin character that draws the palate out. Super persistent, one to sit and savour with the fire roaring.
