Birdhorse Verdelho Contra Costa County

United States > California

Sustainable, Organic, Woman Owner/Producer, and Queer Owner/Producer

Fleshy and bright at the same time, with some salinity and notes of lemon curd.  From the producer:

The Vineyard
Our Verdelho grapes reside in the town of Knightsen in Contra Costa County just 2 miles from the San Joaquin Delta. Warm days help bring out the golden, aromatic tones of this variety but cool winds from the Delta help diminish nighttime temperatures and preserve its brilliant acidity. Planted in 2002, the Evina Vineyard sits on Sorrento silty clay loam soils, farmed organically by grower Tom Morgan.

The Wine
Verdelho grapes were hand harvested in the first week of September. They were whole-cluster pressed to stainless steel, where the juice was held and pumped over once daily for five days. Once native fermentation began, the juice was transferred to to a mixture of neutral oak barrels and pucheons and allowed to ferment for two weeks until reaching dryness. Malolactic fermentation was arrested, and the wine was allowed to age on its lees for 4 months before being racked for bottling.
