Melon de Bourgogne Rodnick Farm
The vineyard sits at high elevation in a desert-like area of the Gabilan Mountains. Grapes are influenced by the coastal terroir, planted on a south facing slope below an inactive volcano. To protect acidity, picking happens on the early side and then pressed whole cluster in concrete eggs. Spontaneous fermentation occurs and the grapes are left on the lees for six months. The end result is a chalky, floral wine with well rounded acidity.
