And even now, you hear a song, smell a smell, share a meal, meet up with those friends that were there and it transports you back to that place; to that night. Meet the Resident. A wine from here in the New World that takes you on a journey to the Old World.
The grapes for this wine grew in a vineyard that has been family-owned and farmed for over 30 years and is currently operated by a father-son duo. The vineyard grows 700 feet above sea level in the heart of McDowell Valley, California where temperature fluctuation and fast-draining sandy loam soil help the vines produce ripe, delicious fruit.
The grapes for were hand-picked from dry-farmed vines planted 30-50 years ago. Grapes were then de-stemmed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 3 weeks. The wine then aged in neutral French Oak barrels before bottling, unfined and lightly filtered.
Did You Know? Petite Sirah and Syrah are different but related: Petite Sirah (aka Durif) was created by botanist Francois Durif in Montpellier, France in 1880 when he crossed Syrah and Peloursin.
