Grapes: Picpoul, Viognier, Roussanne, Vermentino, Petite Sirah, Mourvèdre
Vineyard: Located on a steep hill right on Clear Lake in Lake County, Lovett Vineyard is planted to the vibrant Rhône varieties Picpoul Blanc, Viognier, Roussanne, Vermentino, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. These twenty year old vines come with a picturesque view of the ancient lake (2.5 million years old!) and the volcanic Mount Konocti. Although it's been dormant for about 10,000 years, the volcano continues to have an effect on the beautiful landscape and amazing soils found within the vineyard itself. We've had our eye on this site for a while, and we're grateful to Humberto Nunez and his farming team for taking on the stewardship of this site as we begin to lease it for our 2022 vintage.
AVA: Lake County
Method: The reverse saignée was where half of the total fruit was added to a fermenter as uncrushed destemmed berries. The other half (Petite Sirah & Mourvèdre) was direct-pressed juice that was pressed into those clusters and pumped over daily. It was left on the skins for five days until it was pressed and aged on lees in 225L neutral oak barrels for 7 months, with no battonage and topped every 2 weeks. As always - unfined, unfiltered, no SO2.

Sourced from several Grenache vineyards across South Australia, including some of the region’s most iconic sites, Gorgeous Grenache displays a beautifully perfumed nose with hints of violets and wild strawberry. The palate is succulent, juicy and Pinot-like in its profile while the finish is savoury and moreish.

'Juicy red fruits, almond, a fair bit of spice, perfume and a little mint. Medium-bodied, a light dusting of tannin, clean acidity, red fruit succulence, but keeps itself dry and almost a little serious. Finish is good, gently saline, with playful tannin and quiet perfume. Delightful. Top value.'

The 2013 Brut Vintage displays an enticing pale golden hue underpinned by a vivid and elegant cord.The nose immediately exudes a complex bouquet of almond, cashew nut, small candied seeds, harmoniously counterbalanced by its vibrant sensation of youth and lightness mingling with mineral and floral fragrances. Then as the wine opens up in the glass, the scents of toast and Viennese pastries reveal all their richness and intensity. The mouth tingles under its seductive attack, crisp, fresh, acidulous, and yet full of roundness and suppleness.Then comes a long lasting intense aftertaste with hints of white flowers. This complex body gradually becomes more refined to offer a creamy texture reminiscent of pastry and toasted aromas, to finish with an exquisite salinity.

Spring and Autumn are the two most comfortable seasons in Japan. A time when one can feel the breath of life and the symbols of early Spring – the cherry blossoms. Spring is the time for "Hanami," the cherry blossom viewing events that are held in many different locations all over the country. The best time to see cherry blossoms in Tokyo is usually from the end of March to the beginning of April. But one should be aware that temperatures fluctuate greatly during this time. It can be hot one day and the next day you may shiver from the cold.

Beautiful golden color. On the nose, it is a real aromatic fireworks display. We find there the rose, the passion fruit, the mango … Expressive and complex, it will delight amateurs and neophytes alike. On the palate, the exotic aromas are accompanied by delicate floral notes. The structure reveals a good balance between an attack on the roundness and a fresh and digestible finish.
Grenache has all kinds of iterations. It is one of the most widely planted winegrape varieties in the world. Believed to have originated in Northern Spain (known as Garnacha) and inevitably migrating to France, eventually finding a cozy home in Southern Rhône in the 19th century. Considered a late-ripening varietal, Grenache loves a warm, dry climate and rocky soils… El Dorado County is a perfect fit! Our Estate vineyards (Stoney Creek in Fair Play and Green Valley in Rescue) each bring something unique to the table—Stoney Creek brings sultry elegance and Green Valley brings the upright structure—and while small percentages of each of these sites makes the cut for our El Dorado Grenache, we hold back the lion’s share for this “Grand Cru” style offering.

Torrontes is the signature white wine of Argentina, dating from early vineyards first planted in the 1800s. DNA research has shown that the varietal is a cross between the Mission grapes of Galicia, Spain, and Muscat of Alexandria. This popular expression of Argentina is growing in acclaim around the world, popular for a light, refreshing wine with Muscat notes redolent of jasmine and orange blossoms. Excellent as an aperitif, it also finds a welcome place with delicate first courses.
