2016 Pinot Noir - This wine reflects Duvarita's terroir and has an elegant, classic pinot quality. This cool, sandy, hillside vineyard is located just west of the Sta. Rita Hills AVA and is certified organic and Biodynamic®. The vines are planted close together and low to the ground to protect them from the ocean breezes and provide heat from the soil. The sandy soils provide light reflection and are well drained. This 2016 Pinot offers an intense red berry spice, potpourri, and notes of musky herbs and cracked black pepper on the nose. You will enjoy its rich, savory herbs, dark red cherries, and spices on your palate which displays its complexity. It finishes with a beautiful, juicy femininity, with bright floral notes and a hint of black pepper.
2016 Santa Barbara County Dry Riesling - Riesling’s current popularity in the United States has provided a wonderful alternative to typical white California varietals. While the grape is often linked to sweetness, we relished the opportunity to create a unique and dry wine. Unlike the German tradition of leaving residual sugar, our Riesling is fully fermented - completely “bone-dry” as is traditional in our native Austria. The extravagant fruit and floral notes engage the senses while tangy citrus mixed with stone fruit and a clean, refreshing finish make it a tongue pleasing experience which should develop even more character as it ages over the next 5 to 8 years. Dry Riesling is great with cheeses, Thai and Asian spicy foods, vegetable tagine, sushi, fried calamari, halibut and sea bass. Turkey, sausage and fried chicken are also a tasty match.
2013 Vollmond Syrah - Organically grown Syrah picked from the select "Old Block" and upper slope of our property is co-fermented with a bit of our estate Blaufränkisch to create "Vollmond" (meaning "Full Moon") and aged 18 months in French oak. Completely unfined and unfiltered, this is the purest expression of our vineyard. The Syrah takes the mainstage with just a hint of appearance from our Austrian inspired red grape, Blaufränkisch. A little smoky yet restrained with great fruit and acidity, this wine pairs well with braised lamb, lasagna bolognese, and baby back ribs.
