Inspiration for our wines can come from many odd and wonderful places. The seed for this wine began at a dinner early during the 2022 vintage. We had just tried an unusual Austrian white wine blend and all of us were thrilled with the lively aromatics and wonderful texture. As I drove home that night this wine started to form in my mind.
Winemaking Description: The result, a blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris and a touch of Muskateller, made with judicious use of skin contact, spontaneous fermentation and lees aging. The wine is fruity and aromatic with a delicate acid structure and a crystalline finish. The refreshment factor, sublime.
Tasting Notes: I wanted a wine that had a nose that was reminiscent of walking in an alpine meadow on a crisp spring day; alpine flowers, mint, wild herbs with racey acidity.
