Cascara Savagnin 2015
Single Vineyard Series
“Cáscara [cahs’-ca-rah]: Rind, peel, skin, hull, or husk of various fruits”.
This parcel of Savagnin fruit was hand picked from our Western Branch Vineyard, whole bunch pressed, fermented on skins for one month and then aged in older French oak for twelve months. A complex and intriguing wine, it is savoury, with a citrus tang, herbaceous and bone dry. Notes of waxy honeycomb and dried herbs are present on the palate in this unexpected and punchy offering to the senses.
