Jester King SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese 2016 Vintage 375ml
by Jester King
2016 SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese is our 100% spontaneously fermented beer, refermented with Mourvedre and Sangiovese grapes. We took three barrels of two year old SPON from 2014 and one barrel of three year old SPON from 2013 (about 1,600 liters), and added 500 pounds of Mourvedre grapes from the Texas High Plains and 500 pounds of Sangiovese grapes from Colorado. We allowed the beer to referment with the grapes to dryness, then naturally conditioned the beer in kegs and bottles resting on their side. 2016 SPON Mourvedre & Sangiovese was packaged on November 28, 2016. It’s 7.0 percent alcohol by volume, 8 IBU, 3.5 pH, and has a finishing gravity of 1.001 (0.25 Plato). 2016 is our first ever blend.
