Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
Cruse Wine Co. • 750ml • 13.5%
Chardonnay from Sierra Foothills, California, made with 100% Rorick Vineyard Chardonnay grapes harvested by hand, vines planted in the late '60s. These are ungrafted vines of Wente Chardonnay clones. Cruse Wine Co. winemaker Michael Cruse vinifies the grapes adopting a hands-off approach in the cellar. The wine is aged for about 16-18 months in wood barrels.
Valdiguié Nouveau 2018
Cruse Wine Co. • 750ml • 12.5%
Light red wine made from 100% Valdiguié grapes farmed sustainably in California. Cruse Wine Co. Valdiguié Nouveau 2018 is made through carbonic maceration - a vinification technique used to make Beaujolais Noveau - which makes it very low in tannin and seriously juicy. This is a lip-smacking crunchy and refreshing wine to be drunk in excess - just kidding, always drink responsibly kids!
