Martha Stoumen - Teal Drops Rosé 2017
From the distributor-
From a 3.41 hectare vineyard of 16 year old vines in sand and loam soil. Sustainably farmed, hand harvested, direct press, spontaneous fermentation in barrels, aged in neutral oak for 12 months sur lie, no fining, no filtration, and minimal SO2 at bottling.
California is my home, and I seek to express wines that represent my land with purity and precision. I have chosen to work with sun-loving grapes: either those historic to California Viticulture, or those that flourish and maintain elegance in California’s warmth, such as Carignane and Nero d’Avola. I utilize natural, traditional winemaking practices I learned while apprenticing in Italy and Southern France. And most importantly, to truly respect my Californian roots, I ensure my vineyards are farmed in such a way that healthy ecosystems are created and maintained.
