THIS WINE’S STORY

From the Lost Slough Vineyard, right next to the Sacramento River Delta, hence the name. The cooler air and loamy soil from the Delta give this wine a rare minerality not seen in most California white
grapes.

Stainless steel fermented, sur lie aged for 6 months before bottling. This wine took almost two months to go dry giving it a high level of complexity.

Stone fruit pit and Lychee on the nose, river rocks on the palate. Native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered.
