HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Sourced from 40-year-old vines spread across four organically farmed vineyards
  • Comparable to Chablis, embodying a clear, mineral-rich character
  • Named “Citrine” after its quartz-rich vineyards

TASTING PROFILE:

  • "Vibrant and intense, but balanced - as if the volume is turned up on all its parts equally. Briny citrus, orchard fruit, lacy white flowers and minerality are all on display. Dry extract gives the wine concentration and mid palate, while acidity holds the tension. It punches criminally above its weight, and should age as well as any vintage we have bottled."
  • "Pear, lime skin, early picked mango, lilac, clove, quartz dust, loaded palate with a prominent mineral finish."

IN THE VINEYARD:

  • A blend of four distinctive vineyards, each with an average age nearing 40 years
  • Rorick Heritage Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills, Haynes in Napa's Coombsville AVA, Heron Lake Vineyard in Napa's Wild Horse Valley AVA and Brosseau vineyard high up in the Gavalon Mountains

IN THE WINERY:

  • Gentle whole-cluster pressing, barrel fermentation with native yeast
  • Aged 12 months on lees; bottled unfined and unfiltered
  • Eco-conscious with the use of Plantcorc, a sugar cane-based cork alternative

RECOMMENDATIONS:

  • Exceptionally versatile, ideal with a range of seafood including lobster rolls, fresh crab or oysters
  • Complements creamy pasta dishes or a fresh, zesty salad
