This is from the same wonderful vineyard as our Lopez Red, but from another block, across the street from the mysterious Lopez Palomino.
We harvested this fruit early in harvest, only a few days after the Palomino, always with the intention of making white wine-- or at least, a light and pale rosé. I am convinced that in warm regions like this, Blanc de Noir wines are the perfect way to make light and refreshing wines. Even warm-climate white varieties are not necessary.
Foot-stomped then pressed immediately, aged in a single neutral barrel-- the wine is light but moderately intense, slightly funky.
