2018 Sabelli-Frisch "Milk Fed" Sierra Foothills Marsanne (Previously $40)

SKU #1490378

Winemaker's Notes: "My limited edition series is an ongoing experiment with making more aromatic and fuller whites with some skin-contact and in clay amphoras. The ancient Georgians calls this when the wine “lays with its mother”. So, I decided to call this series Milk Fed. The Marsanne grape is a Rhône variety that has a long history of pairing with Roussane, but here I wanted to let it speak with its own voice and allow it’s mineral and richer oily fruit textures to come out for this one-off. These Marsanne grapes were crushed, put into clay amphoras with their skins. And then I didn't touch it for 4 months. In fact, I barely even looked at it. What comes out of this limited edition, is a structured and deep white with peachy mineral notes, but without that heaviness you sometimes get with other skin-contact whites. This still has all its fruit showing off. This pairs very well with foods you might consider a lighter red wine for. As always, naturally fermented, no filtering, no fining and with as little sulfites as I can get away with. Ramos Torres vineyard is an organically farmed vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. Impeccably farmed, it produces wonderful fruit from a cooler foothill location."
