Region: Sierra Foothills
Type: White Wine
Queen of the Sierra white estate blend was grown on the organically farmed Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras County at 2000’ elevation, featuring soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone.
Fruit was hand-picked. Most lots were fermented separately due to different pick dates. Individual lots were racked and blended together, and remained in neutral oak or steel tank until being bottled unfined and unfiltered. As with all Forlorn Hope wines, no new oak is utilized, and nothing was added to the must or wine with the exception of minimal effective SO2.
Bright and aromatically complex, with lovely texture. Yellow fruit, a touch of citrus and tropical notes on the palate.
