Post Flirtation White 2020

75% Colombard, 12% Marsanne, 9% Roussanne, 4% Muscat Blanc · California · 755 Cases

This thirst-quenching blend tastes like a margarita and a light white wine went on a date and got a tamari glazed dulce de leche for dessert. Lively aromas of grapefruit oil and salty clay mingle for a slightly spritzed sipper that meets you where you’re at.

Enjoy With

Elote, Vietnamese lemongrass chicken and foods that are marinated in lime juice. This mineral driven wine pairs well with anything from the ocean or eaten near the ocean.

Drink When

You’re on the beach volleyball bench, shady swaying in the hammock or tipsy trying on sunglasses in a fancy beachside boutique.

Martha's Notes

This is always a fun wine to make, as it marks the beginning of harvest in late August. The Urban Edge Farm is located outside of Oakley, 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 old vine Colombard in this blend is versatile, as it maintains basically the same sugar level and acidity on the vine from August to November. When picked in late August it reminds me of a featherweight Basque Txakoli (while our late season Colombard going into our Honeymoon has a more Chenin-like characteristics). The combination of these two vineyards results in a wine full of summer flavors, slightly salty, and extremely drinkable.
