Heringer Family Vineyard enjoys the cooling breezes from the Sacramento Delta and has been in the same family since 1868. Certified Sustainable and herbicide free, HFV pairs consistently warm days with very cool nights that allow for perfect growing conditions.
Picked early to retain acidity, the fruit is destemmed into an open top tank and fermented on skins for 17 days. Pressed after dryness, the wine is racked to neutral barrels for eight months to complete ML, then bottled with minimal SO2. No fining, no additions, and only a light filtration on the bottling line.
An exotic foray into orange wine, this refreshingly clean wine has a mouthfeel that lends itself to Chardonnay drinkers looking for something different. Apricot and red pear on the nose, bruised apple and rose hip on the nose make way for stunning depth from sur lie aging. A silky finish is accentuated by a light tannin element with touches of fennel and spearmint.
