2020 Fledgling Sur Lie
4-Packs only available in the bottle shop & Picton market at this time
We knew we wanted to use stubbies at FieldBird - we just had to figure out what to put in them. Enter, the Fledgling.
Our 2020 harvest fledgling is a five apple blend with McIntosh, Jersey Mac, Empire, Spartan and Sillness from our orchard. We barrel fermented each variety and blended together for bottle conditioning.
Big, soft bubbles, deeply layered apple notes flowing into a medium-long almost earthy finish. The Fledgling is something special. Throw some stubbies in a bucket with ice and have your own adventure.
8.4% ABV, 355mL bottles.
Primary Varietals: Silken, Jersey Mac, Empire, Spartan, McIntosh.
I see two barrels half-buried
in the soil. They are as much a part
of our garden as the yarrow and
The barrels inhale sunshine from above.
They exhale warmth below.
The barrels, the yarrow, the earthworms, and us.
We are one.
