Colombard & Chardonnay, Redwood Valley, California | Our fav California gal takes an alpine vacay with this luscious, lacquered, Jura-inspired white. Honeymoon is an ode to layered complexity; in 2018 botrytis contributed to this effect, in 2019 they used barrels and didn’t top up the Chardonnay to achieve a subtly oxidative style. The Colombard has a long hang time as well; this wine is meant to have loads to tertiary qualities in addition to the classic freshness we expect from her wines. Honeymoon fills you up like a hot summer sunset, flowing through your veins & flushing up your cheeks. She blows you a thick honey kiss from a cool hermit’s alpine herb garden, baked apple in cognac with a hint of roasting hazelnut eaten from earthenwear in a sweet little cottage. This wine has so much soul, it makes you feel nostalgic even while drinking for the very first time. How does it do such a thing? Because it is pure cozy magic, like eating a hearty soup or stew that is very obviously made with the secret ingredient ‘love.’ Martha suggests pairing this ambrosial alpine elixir with a big chunk of hearty bread, spread thickly with butter & sprinkled with sea salt— we simply cannot imagine a pairing more perfect, & will defer to her in this regard.
Colombard, Roussanne, Marsanne & Muscat Blanc, Sebastopol, USA | Leave it to Martha Stoumen to create a textured and fresh white that literally tastes and smells like a day by the beach – a whole California daydream in a bottle! Made from organically grown grapes from Mendocino and Contra Costa County (affectionately named CoCo!), this thirst-quenching blend is practically iridescent in all of its plush, textured glory. Fermented in tank on the lees with just a touch of skin contact, aged for six months and bottled without fining or filtration. You ain’t never had a low-ABV summer sipper like this – lemon spa water, cucumber eyes, yellow dragonfruit, mango bubble tea, seaspray without the salt, pomelo rind, apple cider, breezy white florals & the tiniest touch of spritz. Pair with Vietnamese lemongrass chicken, raw fish & skinny dipping in the hotel pool – like this wine, you're the life of the party & they can’t stop you!
