Origin: Clarksburg AVA, CA
USNW Classification: Natural Winemaking
Varietal & Type: 42% Verdejo, 36% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Pinot Gris, 6% Chenin Blanc, 4% Muscat Canelli
Young, bright, high acid white wine. Incredibly crisp and shining example of the power of a Sauvignon Blanc. Higher acid and sharper finish than the 2020 vintage Cambaro white due to age.
This is an incredibly fun take on an easy drinking Spanish white wine, with most of the blend being comprised of Verdejo. The small amount of Muscat Canelli provides intense aromatics, with Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, and geranium on nose; white flower and jasmine also combine for an incredible bouquet. Peppermint and lime zest linger on an entry that brings to mind sipping sprite on the beach. Grated lemon and salinity complement a body that expands horizontally and includes fennel, citrus blossom, and Bermuda grass. Finish of grapefruit zest and stone.
Please Note $2 of each bottle is donated to Lift Collective. Each series has a curated Spotify playlist to accompany the wine. Enjoy! https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1iMHOrX4lh4TYAvtd3yFPI
About The Winemaker
Tarpon Cellars was founded with the focus of bringing people together through wine, music, art, and philanthropy. We feel the best way to do this is through not only crafting inspired wines that speak to a sense of place and vintage, but by being a heart-centered business that values connection, sustainability, and community over anything else. They make wines to share with our friends and our family, and the sense of gratitude we have for that is what encompasses everything that we do.
A Georgia native, Jeremy attended Florida State University before moving to the Napa Valley in 2007 for an internship at his uncle’s winery in Rutherford. He would soon hone his winemaking acumen through positions at Luna, Chappellet, and Duckhorn while also crafting 90-point wines under his previous label, J.R. Carter Wine Cellars. Having made wine in Napa, Sonoma, and New Zealand, the opportunity to work with fruit from Shifflett Ranch and create a brand of distinction was an opportunity he had always dreamed of. Jeremy lives in St. Helena and in his spare time, he enjoys live music, college football, and teaching yoga.
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
