Region: Sierra Foothills
Type: Orange Wine
Matthew Rorick has been the winemaker behind the Forlorn Hope wines since the inception of the label in 2005, and tends 75 acres of organically farmed grapevines at Rorick Heritage Vineyard. His love of wine was fostered comes from his grandfather David Rorick Jr., who was a consummate dining partner and storyteller. His current efforts at RHV, including producing organically farmed estate wines and reconnecting with California’s pre-Prohibition viticultural traditions, are largely inspired by conversations at his grandfather’s table.
This is an orange wine with grippy tannins and aromas of Grand Mariner. On the palate, notes of lychee, cucumber and honeydew melon.
