BROC CELLARS LOVE WHITE, California
$23.99 SALE $20.99
Grapes for the Love White come from our friend Oscar Ramos’ vineyard – Love Ranch. Located 35 miles south of Yosemite National Park in Madera County. At 1,350 ft elevation, it’s not your normal Central Valley Vineyard. The soils are made up of granitic schist and is farmed without the use of pesticides. We keep a large amount of leaves on the vines to protect against the heat. We also keep a slightly larger crop to disperse much of the sun’s energy to prevent the sugars from spiking and to help maintain the alcohols below 14%. The grapes were harvested in August to help preserve their natural acidity. All varieties were fermented separately then aged in neutral French oak barrels for 8 months with no S02. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to happen naturally. We added Picpoul to the Love White blend – adding more brightness. 38% Marsanne, 24% Picpoul, 22% Rousanne, 16% Grenache Blanc.
