2018 Contra Costa County Rose' of Zinfandel 2018 Contra Costa County Rose' of Zinfandel

This is not your mother's White Zinfandel, but it is just as crushable. Our 2018 Rose' of Zinfandel comes from 65 year old own-rooted vines planted in the sands of Contra Costa County. We went direct-to-press with the whole clusters resulting in a light colored rosé that we barrel fermented (natively) and aged for 8 months before bottling unfined and unfiltered.

This Rose' has notes of strawberry and watermelon with a beautifully integrated and structured finish. Drink on a porch with arugula salad, feta cheese, strawberries and almonds while listening to Zeppelin's "Going to California."

2015 "Cerca Trova" Sierra Foothills Vermentino 2015 "Cerca Trova" Sierra Foothills Vermentino

Circa Trova is Italian for "seek and you will find," which is what we did (for three years) before finding a great vineyard for this rarely (California) grown grape. You'll typically find Vermentino produced on the island of Corsica, western/central Italy or in southern France under the name "Rolle." Our Vermentino comes from the schist and limestone soils of Calaveras County in the Sierra Foothills. These soils paired with the high elevation give this wine a distinct minerality and bright acidity, along with notes of daffodil, grapefruit pith, subtle almond and lime zest.

Winemaking
Our Vermentino grapes were destemmed and pressed into a stainless steel tank where the juice underwent a cool, slow three week fermentation before being racked in old French Oak barrels where it aged for 18 months prior to bottling.

GOLD DUST ESTATE VINEYARD - FAIR PLAY AVA

Our organically farmed Gold Dust Estate Vineyard is situated in the Sierra Foothills of El Dorado County on top of a 2500' ridge composed entirely of decomposed granite soils. Granite, which is derived from cold quartz and magma, give the soil a high pH content, which promotes fresh acidity our estate wines as well as well-draining soils that stress the vines to focus their energy into the grapes. The ridge line yields an abundance of warm and direct sun exposure, while the elevation provides a cooling element at night, that allows for the slow and even ripening of the grapes. A truly special place to grow low-yielding, high quality wine grapes.

WINEMAKING
We lightly direct pressed our Primitivo and Tempranillo into 50% old French Oak barrels and 50% stainless steel where it fermented and aged on the lees for 8 months before bottling without fining or filtering.
