Malvasia Bianca 100%
Picked from vineyards in Monterry, crushed then soaked on their skins for 12 hours. Like the 2014, the 2015 will lean toward the savoury end of the Malvasia spectrum. However in its youth it is showing a lot more fruit forward character. This wine could easily age for 6-8 years.
Alex Krause and John Locke founded Birichino in Santa Cruz in 2008. Drawing on a combined four decades making wine in California, France, Italy, and beyond, they are focused on attaining the perfect balance of perfume, poise, and puckishness. Sourcing from a number of carefully farmed, family-owned, own-rooted 19th and early 20th century vineyards (and a few from the late disco era) planted by and large in more moderate, marine-influenced climates, their preoccupation is to safeguard the quality and vibrance of their raw materials. Their preference is for minimal intervention, most often favoring native fermentations, employing stainless or neutral barrels, minimal racking and fining, and avoiding filtration altogether when possible. But most critically, their aim is to make delicious wines that give pleasure.
