2020 Birdhorse Verdelho
Our Verdelho grapes are grown in the Borden Ranch appellation of Lodi, CA. It is farmed by Markus Bokisch, a passionate advocate and farmer of Iberian varieties in CA. Gravelly, Redding clay-loam soils and hot summer heat give rise to dense flavors in these 25 year-old vines. The Vista Luna Vineyard is CCOF certified vineyard, and this wine is a reflection of the intensity of the climate from which it hails.
Fermented in neutral French oak vessels of various sizes, this bottling has heaps of fresh, exotic fruits. Aromas of bright citrus like pomelo and makrut lime compliment a backbone of wet stones and chalk dust, with a touch of green pineapple. It's bright, natural acidity lifts up a juicy and unctuous palate, with a touch of honeyed tropical fruit that gives it a unique glow.
