2016 Scribe, Skin Fermented Chardonnay | Carneros, Sonoma County, California 500mL

Varietal(s): Chardonnay

Vineyard Management: Practicing organic with a focus on biodiversity

Winemaking: Macerated on skins for a minimum of 90 days, spontaneous yeast fermentation in concrete egg, aged on lees, Unfined/Unfiltered

Vegan: Yes 

Typicity: Atypical. But it's not that weird, just a little extra texture with orange marmalade notes. 

Bio: Andrew and Adam Mariani are fourth generation California farmers, with the family growing almonds and walnuts in Winters, California. In 2007, after working wine harvests Greece, Cote-Rotie and South Africa they returned and purchased a turkey ranch just south of the town of Sonoma at the base of Arrowhead Mountain. It took the better part of four years to revitalize the property eschewing all additives-focusing on restoring biodiversity and the soil's microbiota. 

Their wines are now such a staple of low-interventionist and organic farming in Sonoma that I sometimes forget it started with two young brothers on defunct turkey ranch. What started as a bit experimental, has now quickly become the standard. That's how I know I'm getting old.
