This is another brand from Charles Smith of K Vintners. Named after a Spanish guitarist "Sixto Rodriguez. He sold more albums than Elvis in South Africa. This is fermented in combination of concrete, stainless and neutral oak barrels. Then, blended. On the nose; big lemon, cream, lime, green apple, overripe pineapple, soft minerality and spring flowers. The body is creamy & thicker in style. You definitely pick up the concrete influence right away. The oak influence is very gentle. Fruits are; lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple with light notes of Bosc pear. The edgy minerality comes shinning right after the fruits set. The acidity is high and a little sharp with a decent finish. The name "Uncovered" comes from Charles. He believes that he uncovered something with this tri-fermenting process.
