RORICK HERITAGE VINEYARD
The hallmark of this dramatic schist and limestone vineyard at the ascend of the Sierras is a wine with serious cut and drive. Picked early to preserve acidity (which it has in spades) and crushed by foot for a 3 day whole cluster cold soak which adds phenolic texture while lending a beautiful rosé Champagne like color. Fermented and aged in a combination of stainless and neutral oak then aged all in barrique.
This wine is pure stone and earth. Wildly perfumed of charentias melon, stone fruit, bergamot and kaffir lime leaf with ripper acidity.
