2007 Scholium Project Naucratis "Lost Slough Vineyard" Verdelho

SKU #1040597

Abe Schoener's Scholium Project was recently named one of the San Francisco Chronicle's Six New Cult Wines. Trained by chardonnay impresario John Kongsgaard, Schoner's style takes a barel-by-barrel approach, invoking the create approach of Italian wine mavericks like Josko Gravner. The Naucratis is 100% tank-fermented verdelho from Lost Slough Vineyard. With none of the floral qualities of previous vintages, this wine comes across like a gruner impersonator: distinctive minerality, white flowers and stone fruit notes on the nose. But it's a muscular, masculine wine on the palate, with sweet fruit and flowers. A great pairing for your favorite Thai or Indian dishes.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
