The grapes for this wine come from 50+ year old vines from a vineyard in Redwood Valley, Mendocino, tenderly farmed by the Upton family, who have maintained a CCOF organic certification for their vineyard since 1990. Once harvested, the grapes were brought down to our facility in Santa Cruz County, where they were destemmed and left to rest on their skins overnight, to leech extra flavors and aromatics from the skins. The majority of this cuvee was fermented in stainless steel to maintain aromatics and purity, and for the first time for this wine 35% was aged in neutral French oak barrels to explore differences in elevage. Aged for 6 months on the lees before being racked then bottled, this wine received no additions of any kind including no sulfites.

This juicy, acid-driven Sauvignon Blanc is loaded with flavors of tropical fruits, orange blossom, lime leaf, white flowers, and coarse sea salt. 

By utilizing traditional, artisanal, and elemental practices we create one of a kind wines for those who take interest . Our production is small and our practices meticulous. We go out our way to do things exactly how we feel will best allow the wines to express distinct personality. The fruit is the most important part of the process and it is foundational that we work with good vineyards grown in harmony with their terroir.
