Martha Stoumen 'Post Flirtation' White Blend
Origin: California, USA
Grape(s): 33% Colombard / 26% Marsanne / 23% Roussanne / 18% Muscat Blanc
This mineral driven wine gives off aromas of fresh ocean air, white pepper and kiwi. A beautifully light bodied wine that would complement a variety of foods from Dim Sum to oysters. At only 9.5% alcohol this wine is great from brunch to aperitif to dinner and after. Take me anywhere!
Martha Stoumen Notes: "This is always a fun wine to make, as it marks the beginning of harvest in late August. First Generation Farmers 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."
