Rare Creature: Que Saudade
I'm freaking out over here because this rare creaturefrom Forlorn Hope is now available. This right here is what it's all about.
2015 FORLORN HOPE QUE SAUDADE
Calaveras County - 367 Cases
Variety: Verdelho | Alcohol: 12.78%
The 2015 Que Saudade is produced from Verdelho grown in our own Rorick Vineyard in Calaveras County, as well as DeWitt and Vista Luna vineyards. Each of these three sites and their particular geologies (Rorick Vineyard's schist and limestone, DeWitt's decomposed granite, and Vista Luna's deep cobblestones) provide a distinct contribution that continues to collectively elevate the stakes for the Que Saudade and results in a wine of intense focus and texture — a texture that will continue to evolve and expand for years to come. Hand-harvested, whole cluster-pressed, and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and neutral puncheon. 14 months total elevage. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
