Tasting Notes:

This beer-wine hybrid is named after the thirst-quenching, lightly-fermenting grape juice traditionally consumed to help lubricate the long hours of harvest. Hop Nation and Jamsheed Winery came together using wild fermenting Riesling juice – from Jamsheed’s Garden Gully vineyard in Western Victoria – for inoculation on a small batch of Hop Nation Pilsner wort. The fermenting juice hit the brew with the yeast it needed to kick off but also helped to impart a delicate Riesling character. The wort was hopped up with all German hops – selected to complement the Riesling juice fruit profile. The result is a crisp and refreshing pilsner, with a piney citrus lift and lively acid line – paying homage to the elegance found in a well-made Riesling.
