This is great drinking. GREAT.
About The Wine
The Queen of The Sierra wines have the same frentetic energy as their makers.
Matt Rorick and Dainelle Shehab make their Californian wines (and their Barossa Valley gear, too) at a crazy pace. Vintage is all good times, good tunes, foot-stomping, head-banging and rabble-rousing. It shows in the good-times vibes you get in each bottle.
This wine is the white blend off Matt's organically-farmed vineyard in Calaveras County. The varieties Verdelho, Muscat, and Chardonnay combine into a frisky, floral white that has excellent texture from time in barrel. It's a delicious and easy-drinking white that will have draining the bottle in no time.
About Forlorn Hope
Matthew Rorick is one of California's rockabilly winemaking superstars.
His love for the unloved and obscure varieties dotted around his homeland combined with his stripped-back, bare-knuckle winemaking style have seen his small batches of 'Rare Creatures' develop a feverish cult following in the US of A.
These rogue wines of California are some of the most exciting in the state. The Queen Of The Sierra Estate wines are grown on Matt Rorick's garden of Eden Heritage vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. The fruit is farmed without chemicals, the wines re untinkered-with aside from a dash of SO2.
Want rockabilly wine made with real heart and soul? You've found it.
