Notes from California...
From Bien Nacido a foundational vineyard of the Santa Maria Valley, this is a crisp, mineral-driven wine with captivating brininess. Think: lime leaf and pear, wet stone and sea spray. Here in California, to encounter Melon de Bourgogne - the grape of Muscadet - is exceedingly rare, and yet this fifty-year-old vineyard has always hidden in plain sight. (The vines’ origins involve a case of mistaken identity—a tale best shared over a glass of wine. Just ask us some time!) Planted in 1973 on its own roots, this wine is at once a time capsule and just simply refreshing.
