dewey's wines white blend sumu kaw vineyard 2020 white wine

New to the Dewey’s line-up, this blend of roussanne and viognier is our first outing with Sumu Kaw Vineyard, for us, a long-sought-after site located at 3,000 foot elevation in the Sierra Foothills.

We picked with co-fermentation in mind, the viognier nice and ripe, the roussanne bright and mineral. The grapes were destemmed, foot tread, and left to macerate for several hours. This wine is a true labor of love as I found myself alone in the cellar in the middle of the night after a long day’s work, at first stoked with the music blasting and a beer in hand, and hours later humbled and bewildered by the grapes’ thick skins. What resulted is a wine of such concentration and depth I can almost taste the tears. Organically farmed fruit, fermented in stainless steel, bottled young, unfined and unfiltered. A clear snapshot of a vineyard’s integrity.
