We picked this fruit somewhat early to preserve the natural acidity, native fermented in cement eggs, and stainless steel. In fact, Edgar the egg got a partner, Althea. They now ferment happily together, side by side on a slow stroll to the finish. We like our Sauv Blanc precise, with minerality and texture. Beautiful aromas of grapefruit, lemongrass, and wet stone carry through to the bright, lively finish.

Harvested at the new moon, pressed at the full moon. This wine is a total body experience. Left on the skins for 14-31 days, with gentle hand push downs, this Sémillon is a luscious, energetic funkster. It is unlike any other wine I have ever tasted, in a good way with notes of honeycomb, tea, candied lemon peel, petrol. Drink this morning, noon, or night. It doesn’t matter. It is joy liquified.

Every year this is a different dance within our vineyard. In 2017, those that sang well together were like a classic with a twist…  Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc with a dose of Petit Verdot, Syrah, and Graciano. Some things just work. Think the remake of Lady Marmalade. Violet, nutmeg and cardamom, black cherries, plum, and an earthy, mushroom, toastiness with fine grained tannins.
