Post Flirtation White 2023


40% Roussanne, 28% Marsanne, 24% Muscat blanc, 9% Colombard



Vinification Notes:

Muscat blanc and Roussanne harvested three days prior to Marsanne. Each lot tumbled in the press to get just a hint of skin contact before pressing, then co-fermented in stainless steel and aged on fine lees for 6 months. Colombard pressed immediately, fermented separately in stainless steel, and aged in neutral vessels before blending with Roussanne, Marsanne, and Muscat blanc. Unfined. Unfiltered. Sediment expected.


Roussanne, Marsanne, and Muscat blanc from Cecchini Family Vineyard (formerly The Urban Edge Farm), Knightsen, Contra Costa County; farmed according to organic principles (no pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers); sandy clay soils.

Colombard from Ricetti Vineyard, Redwood Valley, Mendocino County; head trained vines planted in 1948; dry farmed (non-irrigated), certified organic vineyard; gravelly loam soils.

Martha's Notes

This is always a fun wine to make, as it marks the beginning of harvest in mid-to-late August. Cecchini Family Vineyard is located in Knightsen, Contra Costa County (affectionately CoCo). The weather and soils of CoCo are reminiscent of the Mediterranean, with a hot land mass, super duper sandy soils, and a near constant cooling wind coming off of the very cold, salty waters of the Carquinez Strait. The resulting wines are full of summer flavors, slightly salty, and extremely drinkable. A splash of old-vine dry farmed (non-irrigated) Colombard from Ricetti Vineyard in Redwood Valley adds lift to this lemon-forward, refreshingly complex blend.
