Point Break White Table Wine 2020
Half Ribolla Gialla (Clements Hills) and half Chenin Blanc (Carmel Valley). The Ribolla Gialla is sourced from a 2-acre block in the Il Mio Vigneto Vineyard, fastidiously farmed by Dwight Busalcchi. Part of the larger Lodi AVA, Clements Hills is hot and dry during the day with cool, nocturnal air flowing from the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The Chenin Blanc is from the magisterial Massa Vineyard in Carmel Valley, a dry-farmed estate that has been certified organic since the early 1980s. At 1200-1500 feet, Massa Vineyard overlooks the Cachagua region, hilly and verdant with deep sandy loam soils that nurture soulful, expressive vines. Both grapes were harvested at 22 Brix and fermented in stainless steel. The wines were aged separately for 8 months in barrel before blending. 12.9% Alc./Vol.
