Variety: Pinot Noir, Gamay and Mondeuse
While we’ve worked with wines from Rajat Parr fpr year (cue Evening Land, Sandhi, DDLC), the new project Phelan Farm has a new aim. The goal here is regenerative farming with its home base in the coastal region of Cambria at Steiner Lake. In this journey, he uses varieties one might use in the Savoie or Jura regions of France, Gruner, Syrah or even sometimes using apples as the base. The fruit is often estate fruit, though it is often purchased from other trusted farmer friends. The wines show American terroir through the lens of a European. The production is miniscule and the wines are special.
Inspired by the wines of the alpine region of Savoie in France, this red comes instead from the cool maritime climate of San Luis Obispo, California. The wine is aged in neutral oak and undergoes whole cluster fermentation. Winemaking is mostly hands off to allow the farming to be highlighted.
