The 2015 Authenticity represents why we love to incorporate whole clusters into our fermentations. When the stars align and the entire cluster is beautifully ripe, the resulting wine becomes so much more than the sum of its stem and fruit parts. With 35% whole cluster inclusion, this wine is a treasure that unravels with air and time. At first meaty, earthy and reductive, ethereal freshness accompanies rich yet delicate red fruit and laces the aromas and palate with peppery spice. Seekers, this wine has that “it” factor that is easier to taste than describe.
Authenticity is a very authentic blend with primarily Syrah from one very steep limestone hillside at Paderewski and blended with a neighboring block of Mourvèdre to yield a supple, sultry and seamless wine that is classically Paderewski. Sometimes we co-ferment some Syrah with a neighboring Viognier block to add a little spice and freshness to the mix. This wine is deemed “The Bill Wine” because it has many gears – big and bold yet elegant and refined.
