Solo Act 2020


53% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne, 7% Muscat blanc



Vinification Notes:

Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat blanc harvested together and briefly tumbled in the press for just a hint of skin contact before pressing, then fermented on full lees in stainless steel. After 6 months, the fully dry wine was racked off lees to neutral oak barrique to continue aging for an additional 12 months before bottling. Unfined. Unfiltered. Sediment expected.


Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat blanc from The Urban Edge Farm, Knightsen, Contra Costa County; certified organic vineyard; sandy clay soils.

Martha's Notes

Solo Act 2020 casts a new spotlight on a favorite co-ferment of Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat blanc from The Urban Edge Farm in Contra Costa County. When crafting our Post Flirtation White blend, these three varieties are co-fermented before blending with Colombard or Vermentino for balanced acidity. In 2020, intuition suggested that we put aside a few barrels worth of wine from the co-ferment prior to blending and provide the wine its own stage — a solo act! Tasting this wine throughout a longer élevage in barrel provided a sensory bath full of emerging salty, umami-driven characteristics. This is a wine that I love to pair with food and consider what else around me shines when brought into focus.
