It’s a classic San Francisco experience - you’re leaning in towards the bone-chilling fog and wind, trying to get down some wind tunnel of a street when you finally round the corner to find…. warm, sunny, bliss. All you did was turn onto a side street, but it’s as if you entered a different city! You find yourself breathing one long sigh of relief - you might even forget where you were rushing off to!
And that’s just how I felt when I discovered this wine. I was tasting through tables and tables of different producers on a cold wintery day, trying to find the perfect wines for our spring collection and all of a sudden, there it was, springtime in a glass. With aromas of fresh-cut grass, white blossoms blooming all around, and the faintest aroma of salty ocean air in the morning fog - it’s a beautiful moment of bliss in a bottle.
This wine is pretty, it’s refreshing, and it will make you forget what you were doing before you took that first delightful sip. It’s a wine that benefits from a good chill and that doesn’t like to be open for too long before you finish it, so grab some friends, pour a few glasses, and cheers to the arrival of spring!
