Elio's Thanksgiving Picks
Called Napa Gamay for the longest time, it wasn’t until a lab test revealed it’s true identity. 60+-year-old vines in both Frei (acidic soils) and Wirth Vineyard (steep, iron-rich slopes) in Solano County’s Green Valley, just southeast of Napa. Partial carbonic maceration in tank.
At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
Distinctive variety perhaps best known for sweet wines. This dry example shows a distinctive oily, slightly phenolic texture, fresh acidity, very complex and interesting aromas and flavors (herbal hints, white peach, even a hint of marmalade). Long; I bet this would age, although I haven't had older examples.
Broc Cellars Rosé of Lagrein is made from fruit grown in the El Dorado Hills. Lagrein is a traditional Northern Italian varietal, and this rosé is modeled after an Alto Adige classic. Crisp and bright, with aromas of tart berries and red fruit, it brings raspberries, cherry, and flint to the palate. Rosé of Lagrein is crisp and light, perfect with for pairing with stone fruit in salads or roasts, cheese plates, or anything eaten on a picnic blanket in the sunshine.
