You’re digging through the crate for your deepest cuts. This bottle will bring your right back to the surface, whether you’re knee-deep in niche recordings or you’re on hour four of your sea bird Wikipedia deep dive. It’s deep, it's weird, and you’re just getting started.

Martha's Notes

Solo Act 2022 returns the spotlight to a favorite co-ferment of Marsanne, Roussanne, and Muscat blanc from Cecchini & Cecchini Vineyard 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! The 2022 wine continues this performance with an exotic citrus oil aroma and a generous and salty palate ready for pairing with food.
