100% Sauvignon Blanc grown on Robert Surmann’s vineyard located in Totness, grown on black sandy soil overlying petrified schist. Whole bunches placed in a 2400L wooden fermenter and then topped with free-run juice until the fermenter is full. The fermenter is sealed and the wine undergoes carbonic ferment and is aged for 4 months on the macerated whole bunches. The wine is pressed in winter and bottled. The wine is a slightly cloudy, golden color with a kaleidoscope of orange hues. It's aromas of citrus peel and marigolds lift above the myrrh of snappiness.
"There is a tension in this wine from the pull of savory tannins and the sweet perfume of kumquats. Orange wine has existed forever and will never die because it is sublime." - Anton
