I know absolutely nothing about wine, but I like this one, discovered last year at Passionfish. I believe “Un-oaked” means the wine was fermented in something other than Oak barrels (in this case, stainless steel). This gives it a smoother taste than you’d expect. Also, they don’t grow their own grapes; they use a combination of local Sonoma County vineyards.
The name rolls off the tongue...
Don’t let the ridiculous food-pairing suggestions like “fig pizza” stop you, it’s a damn good wine.
Hmmm yes... just the wine I was looking for!
I like their description of the process,
…blending up a big tank of “grown” chardonnay, that is to say no bulk juice, is not unlike making a stew. you want to build in layers of nuance.
You can get it online, but not many other places out there have it. I’ve have only ever seen it at Bi-Rite.
