Region: Sierra Foothills, California, United States Grape(s): Verdelho, Albariño, Muscat, Chardonnay Winemaker: Matthew Rorick & Danielle Shehab Drinks Best: Now - 1 Year
‘Another Rare Creature,’ indeed. Matthew Rorick continues to push the boundaries of California winemaking with his single varietal expressions of obscure grapes and his obscure take on the more common. Their ‘Queen of the Sierra’ wines combine Matthew and Danielle’s creativity, spunk, and affability right in the bottle. For their amber wine, aptly named for its orange hue, they allow the juice to soak with the skins and start fermenting for four months in concrete egg, lending black tea tannins to the wine. Fragrant aromas of cantelope, peaches, and herbs lead to a fresh, clean palate with beautiful floral notes and a juicy texture. This is an easy-going amber wine perfect for any occasion!
