Cider - rather than water - aged on lees/skins to create this wild piquette.
Piquette is a wine by-product that is made by adding water to remaining grape pumace. The sugars left further ferment to create a lighter, more sessionable, fizzy delight. It's a centuries-old tradition (historically, only really enjoyed by winemakers and their helpers) that makes use of a product that would otherwise be thrown away or composted.
