CALIFORNIA : CENTRAL VALLEY : CLARKSBURG
Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris
MED-BODIED, STONE FRUIT, HONEYSUCKLE, SALINE, LIME, STONE, NEUTRAL OAK
Reminiscent of the centuries-old style of Austrian field blends called Gemischter Satz, ‘Delta’ is an unexpected delight — with stunningly bright fruit and a precise, salty minerality rarely seen in California whites. Fruit is sourced from a vineyard site next to the Sacramento River Delta (hence the name) with cool air and loamy soils; juice is fermented w/native yeasts & aged on the lees for 6 months before bottling. Unfined/unfiltered. Drink now but should “keep” well, too.

A fresh, lively, and fruity Brut Nature BdB that combines French sparkling wine heritage with Argentina’s unique terroir.

Their Brut Nature is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes, 50% of which is estate fruit sourced from the Albaneve estate vineyard in the Uco Valley.
