Forlorn Hope 'Queen of the Sierra' 2018 White Wine, Calaveras Co, California

The Queen of the Sierra wines are a celebration of the steep limestone and schist slopes of Rorick Heritage Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills. Made from 100% Estate grown fruit, they are organically farmed, hand-harvested, spontaneously fermented by native yeasts, unfiltered and unfined, with nothing added but minimal effective sulfur.  These are honest and pure California estate wines made with soul that are approachable in price as well as in the glass.

Long live the Queen!

 

  • Winemaker: Matthew Rorick
  • Farming:
  • Variety: Chardonnay, Verdelho, and Muscat,
  • Terroir: Grown on the Rorick Heritage Vineyard in Calaveras County at 2000’ elevation, featuring soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone
  • Vinification: Hand-picked. Most lots were fermented separately due to different pick dates. Individual lots were racked and blended together; they remained in neutral oak or steel tank until being bottled unfined and unfiltered. As with all Forlorn Hope wines, no new oak is utilized, and nothing was added to the must or wine (no cultured yeast, ML bacteria, water, tartaric acid, enzymes, nutrients, etc) with the exception of minimal effective SO2.
