Fuzzy Dice Reds
Zinfandel, Barbera, Tempranillo & Friends, Calaveras County | If you stay ready, you don’t gotta get ready, and if you’re clever enough to bring this savoury, juicy red blend along, you’re set for the whole day, from hot summer afternoons to breezy evenings spent gallivanting around town! From the winemaking luminaries at Forlorn Hope, the Queen of the Sierra wines are made for drinkin’ like boots are made for walkin’, here in a sassy blend of Italian grapes – Zinfandel, Barbera, Tempranillo, Trousseau Noir and Mondeuse – that were fermented separately and aged in barriques before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. At first swirl, you can practically feel the heat radiating off the terracotta and sun-baked earth, alongside notes of cherry blaster, herb stem, charc board, petrichor, cola nut and clove with dewy tannins, mouthwatering acid and a ripe, satisfying finish. Pair with hoodie-and-shorts weather, scraping your knees at night and touching a cactus you really shouldn’t.
Calaveras County, USA | Do you believe in love? We do, and so does this light-hearted Grenache with its heart on its sleeve and its head in the clouds, courtesy of Northern California star, Forlorn Hope. Pouring a surprisingly pale colour, this bright, sapid red reveals a refreshing side of Grenache with age, done in swaths of dark fruit and savoury forest flavours. Grown on the Rorick Heritage Vineyard on schist and dolomite-rich limestone, the grapes were fermented for three weeks in open-top fermenters and aged for 16 months in neutral oak barriques. Juicy, fresh and smells like chocolate-covered blueberries on a cedar plank, intriguing like the best things in life. Fresh blackberry, elderberry cordial, pine needle, tomato stem & raspberry leaf with a firm tannic grip and lip-smacking acid. With just 212 cases produced, this is a pleasure most fleeting! Put a slight chill on it and pair with anything grilled, a cheeky cig & sunglasses at night.
