This Austrian variety has been grown by Dale Ricci, a longtime family friend, for about 15 years. Ricci vineyards is on the Sonoma half of Carneros and only a few miles from the San Pablo Bay.

The wine was made with very little extraction to bring out the unique characters of the site and variety. As with all of our wines, only native yeasts were used and the addition of sulfites occurred post fermentation and pre-bottling. Only 10.9% alcohol, this wine is definitely the most counter culture of these releases. A little funk on the nose blows off quickly, giving way to cherries and spice. The palate is lean and bright, with very light tannins and a finish that refreshes. We currently recommend decanting this wine.
