2019 Arista, UV Lucky Well Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley 1x75cl

RP97
Blend: 100% Pinot Noir Vintage production: 657 cases The Lucky Well vineyard sits atop a knoll on the western edge of the Sebastopol hills outside of the towns of Graton and Sebastopol. The area is... home to some of the most highly acclaimed Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards in the Russian River Valley due in large part to the perfect confluence of soil, climate, and elevation. The vineyard is in an area often referred to as the “banana belt” of the Russian River Valley because, though on the very coolest, foggiest, and western edge of the appellation, it sits on a knoll that rises above the fog line. This feature exposes the fruit to more gentle sunlight, which allows very slow and even ripening across the entire growing season. Arista's 4-acre section was planted in 2008 to Pommard, Swan, and Calera clones of Pinot Noir.

2019 Arista, Ritchie Chardonnay, Russian River Valley 1x75cl

JD97
Blend: 100% Chardonnay Vintage production: 213 cases Arista's expression of the Ritchie Vineyard is made all the more exciting as Matt Courtney is renowned for his 10 year tenure at Marcassin -... arguably California's most illustrious Chardonnay producer - where he had a hand in multiple 100 point scoring wines. First planted in 1972 on the sandy Goldridge soils of the Russian River Valley, the Ritchie Vineyard is regarded as one of Sonoma's 'Grand Cru' sites. The complex terroir of ancient seabed, volcanic ash deposits and pockets of tufa rocks combine to create a unique vineyard that produces wines of intensity and great natural acidity.

2021 Aperture, Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County 12x75cl

RP96
Blend: 97% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Semillon Production: 1,808 cases Aperture's Sauvignon Blanc was originally inspired by winemaker Jesse Katz’s experience working at Bordeaux First-Growth, Château... Haut-Brion in Bordeaux. His unique barrel program provides the wine with a distinct complexity and a subtle weight on the palate. The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is the first vintage to include Estate-grown Sémillion and Sauvignon Musqué, planted on the Aperture property in 2019. These two estate blocks were hand-harvested in early September while fruit from Dry Stack Vineyard in the Bennett Valley AVA was brought in in early October, consistent with this vineyard’s unique late-ripening characteristics. 1/3 New French oak, 1/3 once used French Oak, and the remaining neutral French oak was selected for this vintage’s barrel program. Once transferred to barrel, the wine was placed in a cold barrel room to keep fermentation cool and slow to intentionally preserve the bright aromatics and fresh quality. As the wine slowly fermented for an additional 3 weeks in barrel, it was topped and stirred weekly. The wine stayed in those same barrels for 6 months. At that point, Jesse stopped the fermentation in order to maintain the wine’s natural bright acidity.
