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.

Our Price: $22.00
2021 Clarksburg Chenin Blanc 2021 Clarksburg Chenin Blanc

A fresh, acid-driven white wine reminiscent of Chardonnay, but without all the buttery notes. Our Chenin Blanc features aromas and flavors of Chamomile, yellow apple, lemon verbena, apricot, and peach wrapped in a soft mouthfeel that seamlessly leads to a bright, zippy finish. Drink on its own or pair with chicken, pork, and cow cheeses such as gruyere, triple cream brie, or cheddar.

Clarksburg AVA
The Clarksburg viticultural area lies just south of Sacramento alongside the Sacramento river which acts as a night time temperature regulator in this hot daytime region. The sandy, alluvial soils of the region and cooling river influence have many likening Clarksburg to the Loire region of France, making it a perfect area to grow Chenin Blanc in California.

WINEMAKING
We destemmed and pressed off the Chenin Blanc, 100% into a stainless steel tank where underwent a three week fermentation with indigenous yeast. After alcoholic fermentation, we racked the wine off the lees (spent yeast) into stainless steel barrels, where it aged for seven months before bottling without fining or filtration.

"Grenache makes the best rosè" - Aaron

Our very first rosé release made from Grenache grapes! This past year, we picked up a little more fruit from our Amador County Grenache vineyard in order to make this special rosé release. This wine is busting with flavors of peach, watermelon Jolly Rancher, nectarine, and wild strawberries, wrapped in a soft, pillowy body that lulls you in before smacking you over the face with fresh acidity. This rosé takes you on fun and wild ride, making it the perfect warm weather sipper.

The rosé aged for seven months in stainless steel before being bottled without fining or filtration.
