2020 Fingers Crossed, Assortment Case 6x75cl

JD97/98/97WI97/96/98
Vintage production: 1,720 Assortment cases 'Head Held High' Case contains: 2x75cl White 2020, 2x75cl Syrah 2020, 2x75cl Grenache 2020 Like father, like son: Nikolas Krankl has stepped firmly out of... the imperious shadow of his father, the legendary Manfred Krankl of Sine Qua Non fame, to quickly become “Unquestionably one of the up and coming superstars of California” (JD) with his Fingers Crossed wines.   They are world-class wines that stand alone for their elegance, complexity, and vitality, and the Assortment Cases have become one of the hottest tickets in California!   In 2020, Nik was able to take over his father’s blocks as the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard since Sine Qua Non recently became 100% Estate grown. This makes all three new releases the most exciting to date, especially the White. The Fingers Crossed Chardonnay comes from Block-W which was planted in 1973, making it the vineyard’s oldest. It was these very same vines that went into the legendary Sine Qua Non Pearl Clutcher 2012! Nik also uses fruit from one of California’s other great terroirs, the Sandford & Benedict Vineyard in Sta. Rita Hills, for all three cuvées.   Presented as two bottles of each wine in a stunning wooden box, the Fingers Crossed ‘Head Held High’ Assortment Case 2020 is a cellar essential and as collectible as it gets.

2021 Aperture, Chenin Blanc, Alexander Valley 12x75cl

RP94
Blend: 100% Chenin Blanc Production: 3,294 cases Aperture's Chenin Blanc is a vibrant and bright wine, coming from old vines planted in the 1940’s. It is a product of its rich clay loam soils and... colder, brisk nights that are made possible by the Delta Breeze coming in off the San Pablo Bay. The 2021 Chenin Blanc fruit was night-harvested from the cool Clarksberg AVA on the Sacramento River. Jesse incorporated 80% stainless-steel barrels and 20% neutral French oak barrels for the 2021 vintage. Once it was transferred to barrel, the wine was placed in the cold barrel room to keep the fermentation cool and slow, maintaining freshness and bright aromatics. As the wine slowly fermented for an additional 3 weeks in barrel, Jesse topped and stirred each barrel weekly. The wine stayed in those same barrels for 6 months before bottling.

2020 he-li-an-thus, Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley 1x75cl

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Vintage production: 163 cases Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most exciting grape varieties in Napa, and at the top end it’s up there with the best white wines in the... World. One of the rarest examples is the he-li-an-thus Sauvignon Blanc. The source of the fruit is a 22 year old hillside vineyard shrouded in secrecy, but we do know the winemaker is a modern day Napa genius: Jason Exposto from FUTO Estate. Jason specifically chose this cool, north facing vineyard as the dry-farmed vines have the perfect synergy of natural richness and crystalline acidity he looks for in a great Sauvignon Blanc. Jason Exposto, Winemaker: "Sourced from a cool pocket of the vineyard and picked over numerous passes. We basket press the whole clusters and run the cool juice to seasoned French oak barrels, where the native yeast ferments the wines to dryness. We age for several months on lees before bottling unfined and unfiltered. Mouthwatering flavour of meyer lemon, jasmine and stone fruit and wrapped together with a flinty acidity."
