    The two different sites bring wonderful complimentary taste characteristics - the Rovera vineyard's small bunches of grapes provide fantastic intensity and acidic backbone, whilst the gravelly Cemetery site provides more lifted aromatics and bright fruit. The palate is rich and generous, with an intensely savory edge to the fruit: blackberry and raspberry aromas, with stones, smoke, celery salt and and wild herbs.

    Vinification: Fruit sourced from two organic sites in Mendocino. 80% fruit came from the Rovera vineyard, planted in 1942 on sandy-quartz soils, and the remaining 20% came from the Cemetery vineyard; a dry farmed site planted in 1954 on gravelly soils. The fruit was vinified according to site. All fruit was de-stemmed, and fermented spontaneously, with fermentation lasting about 12 days, with regular punch downs. Two new barrels were selected for the 15 month ageing period, the rest were neutral oak. Blended in March 2017, the wine underwent light filtration on bottling.
    Region: Mendocino
    ABV: 14.5

    About the producer
    Rory Williams of Calder Wine Company comes from true wine royalty. His father is the owner-winemaker of Frogs Leap, whilst his mother founded Tres Sabores. When not working in the vineyards at Frog's Leap, Rory makes a small quantity of wine under his own label, Calder, using cultivars that have a long history in the place where he was born, honouring the sites, his winemaking idols, and what makes Napa, Napa. Rory wants his wines to relay the history and tradition of this extraordinary region. Having seen the success at both estates with organic and dry land farming, Rory sought out parcels of vines that tick these boxes, as well as them each having the advantage of age.
