This wine, vintage after vintage, remains one of my favourite wines in the shop and particularly wonderful leading into February’s Valentine’s Day.
Winemaking, much like love, can be an inherently risky endeavour. This is why I marvel at winemakers who choose to use wild yeast fermentation. There is something ridiculously human about putting ones hopes, dreams, and even future happiness into something so far from our control. In my opinion, some of the best wines come a place of vulnerability, while love demands a lot of that as well.
