  2. Lieu Dit Melon Santa Maria Valley 2018

    Lieu Dit Melon Santa Maria Valley 2018

    It’s rare to see Melon – the French grape of Muscadet – in California, but there are some old plantings scattered around the state (because UC Davis mistakenly thought it was Pinot Blanc). Alcohol here is just 11.8% – this is so light and fresh, with racy acidity. There’s a gentle fruitiness, with aromas of green apples, as well as a subtle, creamy lees influence and a stony, steely texture. Very much a wine to be drunk with oysters. Learn More

    Kivelstadt Cellars "Mother of Invention" White Blend Mendocino County 2018

    50/50 Marsanne/Roussanne from Mendocino, spending 6 months on the lees in neutral oak barrels to give a lightly creamy texture. This isn’t a fruit bomb – instead it’s all about the texture and structure: waxy and nutty with attractive floral, citrus, and stone fruit aromas with a rich weight to the wine that’s perfectly balanced by the acidity and aromatics coming from the Roussanne. Serve lightly chilled with bouillabaisse. Learn More

The tiny region produces mostly white wines and this is 51% Marsanne, 31% Clairette Blanc, and 18% Ugni Blanc. The flavors are very juicy with white flowers such as Gardenia, under-ripe pears, wet limestone, and a crisp refreshing sea-breeze of minerality.

The flavor profile is mostly lemon/lime with with some chamomile and herb characteristics that are complimented by firm acidity. Learn More
