Broc Cellars Love White
PRODUCER: At Broc Cellars, all of their wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means they only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. They don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. They add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were harvested during the third week of August to help preserve the grape’s natural acidity. The grapes were co-fermented and aged in a combination of a 5-year-old 25hL Hungarian oval cask, 60gal barriques, 150gal puncheons, and 20-year-old 660gal German ovals for 8 months with no S02. Malolactic fermentation was allowed to happen naturally.
TASTING NOTE: An unusual white blend from Chris Brockway; this fresh, lively California wine will have you falling in love at first sip. Aromas of lemon and pear; medium-bodied with a luscious palate. A blend of majority Marsanne with a small proportion of Roussanne and Viognier. Delicious with Greek styled food.
