Martha Stoumen Post Flirtation White 2018 10% (750ml)
Citrus - Jasmine - Mineral
This wonderful minimal intervention Californian white is made with organically grown grapes and no additives except for a tiny amount of SO2 at bottling. It features bright citrus with a hint of white flower blossoms and salty minerality; dangerously drinkable. Drink chilled.
Martha says: "This is always a fun wine to make, as it is the first fruit to come into the winery in late August. First Generation Farmers is located outside of Oakley, Contra Costa County (affectionately known as CoCo). The weather and soils of CoCo are reminiscent of the Mediterranean, with a hot land mass, super duper sandy soils, and a near constant cooling wind coming off of the very cold salty waters of the Carquinez Strait. The resulting wines are full of summer flavours, slightly salty, and extremely drinkable. In 2018 we blended in some earlier season Colombard to illuminate the brightness of this wine. This old vine Colombard is versatile, as it maintains basically the same sugar level and acidity on the vine from August to November. When picked in late August it reminds me of a featherweight Basque Txakoli (while our late season Colombard going into our Honeymoon has a more Chenin-like characteristics). As fun as it is to make, this wine is even more fun to drink."
Grape: Roussanne, Colombard, Marsanne, Muscat blanc
Pair with: Anything you put on the table, great on its own - so versatile!
