Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra 2016

$ 25.99

A blend of Picpoul, Albarino and Verdelho grown on schist and limestone in Calaveras County, CA by cult natural winemaker Matthew Rorick.  Even though this wine was grown thousands of miles from Burgundy with varietals that have little in common with Chardonnay, I couldn't help but compare this beautiful wine with it's nuttiness and floral notes to what I love about Burgundian whites.  Too often the term natural wine is thrown around as a buzzword to compensate for vinegary, dead wines, but this wine is an example of a pure expression of the terroir, truly unique and delicious.
