This wine is part of Southold's Tuesday Night's lineup, meant to be light and good to drink any night of the week. USNW thinks this wine is a fantastic value and packs more complexity than it gives itself credit for. Offering a rare blend of fruit with Texas Hill Country Terroir, this is a must try wine.
Each of these varieties was picked, fermented, and aged separately. The Touriga Nacional and Mataro were both aged in concrete and the Dolcetto was aged in neutral French oak barrels. Native yeast fermentation, unfined and unfiltered, and no additions save for a small S02 addition post malolactic fermentation.
Origin: Fredericksburg, TX, USA
USNW Classification: Natural
Varietal & Type: Mataro, Dolchetto, Touriga Nacional
Black Cherry, Dark Fruit, Tobacco, Blueberries
About the Winemaker & Farm
Southold Farm + Cellar is a winery and vineyard that started on the North Fork of Long Island by Regan and Carey Meador, sold, moved and that now exists in Gillespie County, Texas.
The winery's sole mission is to make wines that speak of place and time, that thrill and delight our friends, family and ourselves. In order to do so, their winemaking decisions are dictated by what has happened during that season, not stylistic emulation of other regions or forced consistency.
Southold believes in farming first and non-interventionist cellar methods.
All of this means you should expect their wines to vary year to year, like individual children with their personalities, they hope their work tells the story of Texas and that vintage through each variety in each parcel.
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!
