Mommenpop Blood Orange Aperitif
Mommenpop started in 2017, as winemaker Samantha Sheehan and her husband Michael were on a spritz kick, drinking them almost daily over the course of a particularly hot California summer. Sam developed Mommenpop at home that year - just for her family and friends - as a less-sweet, dye-free alternative to aperitifs that she loves but that were just so sweet. She used locally-grown peak-season Seville oranges and a juicy base of her own Chardonnay. Then she made some more, with more citrus, and more wine, and more people started asking for it, and a new California aperitif was born.
Mommenpop's Blood Orange aperitif is both refreshing and cozy, rich and vibrant. The backbone of flavor is characterized by a punch of pepper spice, hibiscus and liquid blood orange peel - with a subtle earthiness. What you might want to drink while you have fresh tomato sauce simmering on the stove and Miles Davis on vinyl. Delicious pre-dinner while snacking on olives, during dinner with your favorite pasta dish and after-dinner with some salt-studded dark chocolate. 17% abv.
