Wonderfully paired with my roasted chicken Provençal and my palate. Pears, apple, honey, Meyer lemon, and a touch of celery seed. I would just stick my nose in the glass , but I’m happier drinking it. Get some before they sell out!

This wine has all the things. Flavors. Textures. But importantly, it has all the acidity too. And then *poof* it's gone.

[If the extra year in the cellar chilled out some of the exuberant stone fruit, it also gave the spicy, herbal side a little more room to breathe. I'll take that trade-off.]

Get in line! These guys are killing it. Blend of a bunch of grapes but this is knocking it out of the park with complexity, verve, tension.

So funky and so great. Don't let the murky look detract you, it's supposed to be that way. Unfined, unfiltered and fermented with native yeast. Drinks like stone fruit, explodes with apricot and some white peach, white pepper, tea leaves and lots of kiwi fruit as a kicker. Extremely interesting and would highly suggest.

All the grapes bring all the things. Waxy honeyed palate weight. Tropical fruit. Brisk acidity. Herbal complexity. Leesy richness. Killed it with a nicoise salad.

48% Chenin blanc, 30% chard, and other stuff. A very rough blend, cloudy, kind of kitchen sinky. But not uninteresting. Unctuous is the best way to describe it. Restrained fruit and super fresh.
