Sold Out: Post Flirtation White 2021
36% Marsanne, 34% Roussanne, 16% Vermentino, 14% Muscat blanc · California · 501 Cases
Find this sessionable crowd-pleaser making flower crowns at the party. In 2021 we swapped the usual Colombard for Vermentino, rounding out the slightly salty profile of this wine with just a touch of lemon skin oil—like your wine glass got a twist. Aromatics from the Muscat blanc in the aromatic co-ferment show through with sticky white florals and Muscat’s beautiful, lover's BO-esque perfume.

Lazy afternoons and lemonade stands. Melon and chili, lemongrass chicken, and salty flavors with a little spice do the trick.
You’re shady swaying in the hammock, walking on the sunny side of the street or eating Elotes on the beach volleyball bench.

This is always a fun wine to make, as it marks the beginning of harvest in late August. 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 resulting wines are full of summer flavors, slightly salty, and extremely drinkable. When our old-vine Redwood Valley Colombard (and Carignan) vineyard was damaged by a fall frost (losing 90% of the 2021 yield), we went searching for a new source to provide a citrusy balance to the aromatically-driven Marsanne, Roussanne, Muscat core. Vermentino from a certified biodynamic vineyard in San Joaquin County proved to be a perfect match.
