Region: San Benito County, California
100% Négrette, 74 cases produced. From the Calleri Vineyard in the AVA San Benito County. 100% destemmed, soaked on skins overnight and pressed the next day. Aged in neutral oak for nine months. Native fermentation, no fining, no filtration, no other modifications or additions except 20 ppm of sulfur dioxide the week before bottling. Négrette is a red variety native to southwestern France that winemaker Megan had not only never tried, but never even heard of a couple of years ago. She met the grower and started experimenting without any preconceived notions of what the wine should become. The 2021 version is quite light and chuggable, bursting with fresh grapes, grapefruit, and balsamic notes.
