This is the partner of Naucratis, harvested from a few rows away in Lost
Slough. The wine is a Gewurztraminer; dry, weighty, with the power to
affront. We made only 22 gallons in 2007 and decided to put it into 500
ml bottles to stretch out the production-- from 7.5 cases to 10. We have
kept this curious bottle size because the whole package (with photo of
abandoned tractor on the front) is so perfect for the wine. It is
serious because of its dry power, but its handy size and aromatic charm make it the favorite wine of
the dance floor.
We lost most of our grapes in 2010, making this
vintage much smaller and the wine more rare than in 2009. This vintage
has exceptional power, but all of the grace of past vintages.
2 tall bordeaux bottles created.
