2021 Forlorn Hope – Queen Of The Sierra Amber (750ML)
ORIGIN | California
VARIETAL | Verdelho/Albariño/Muscat/Chardonnay (Orange Wine) **ORGANIC**
WINEMAKER NOTES | Organically grown on the Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras County at 2000’ elevation, featuring soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone. Fermented partially de-stemmed and partially whole-cluster. Blended in stainless. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal added sulfur.
A beautifully nuanced and elegant wine that shows all of the aromatic complexity and textural presence that are the hallmarks of wines grown on the limestone of this estate.
TASTING NOTES | Racy acidity and flavors of grapefruit and underripe peaches.
